The Hannibal Police Department deployed a rarely-used team to apprehend a murder suspect Monday, Oct. 19 in a rural part of Marion County.

As previously reported by the Courier-Post, Bradley D. Tierney has been charged with the second-degree murder in the Oct. 15 shooting death of Ronald Goodrich, 35, of Hannibal. According to an HPD press release, officers and detectives worked around the clock to identify a subject. Hannibal officers secured a search warrant for a home in the Philadelphia, Mo., area.

Due to the nature of the crime, Tierney’s criminal history and the geographical location of the residence, Hannibal Police Department’s Special Response Team — along with Marion County Sheriff’s Department deputies and the Missouri State Highway Patrol K9 unit — served the search warrant.

Once officers were on scene, contact was made with the suspect by a HPD negotiator. After a short negotiation, the suspect and the owner of the residence, 38-year-old Carrie M. Bevill, exited the residence and were taken into custody, without incident, by the HPD officers. Both subjects were released to the Marion County deputies, who transported them to the Marion County jail on a 24 hour hold.

A probably cause statement alleges Tierney shot a killed Goodrich on the parking lot of an auto dealer on Broadway after the two engaged in an argument earlier that evening, presumably over a debt.

Online court documents do not show Bevill has been charged with a crime.
