On Thursday, November 7th at approximately 2:30 in the afternoon, the Dent County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the 2300 block of Highway 19 North.  The call was in reference to a male subject that had shot himself in the head with a pistol.  Officers arrived on scene and found a 29-year old male, identified as Daniel L Bates, with a gunshot wound to the head.  Bates was transported by ambulance to the Salem Memorial Hospital, and lifesaving measures were made.

An early morning accident November 7th at the Brushy Creek Mine has left two Doe Run employees with injuries. According to the press release, the employees were hand scaling the mine ceiling at about 2:00 in the morning in their man-lift bucket when an apparent equipment malfunction caused the bucket they were in to drop about 20-feet to the ground. The employees were airlifted to St. Louis area hospitals due to the remote location of the mine with non-life threatening injuries.

The Salem Police Department released several reports. On Thursday, October 24th at 7:46 in the morning, an officer observed two subjects in an altercation at the Walnut Motel parking lot. The officer observed one subject later identified as a 38-year old male of Granite City, Illinois, swing a pick at a 35-year old male of Memphis, Tennessee and hit him near the neck.

Later that night at 9:46, an officer was detailed to the 200 block of North Washington in reference to the treatment center staff having trouble with an intoxicated client. The investigation led to the arrest of a 19-year old male client of the treatment center for exposing himself to a staff member. He was issued a summons to appear in court for indecent exposure and incarcerated on a 12-hour hold. Later that same night at 11:15, an officer was dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of East Center in reference to a burglary. That investigation revealed that someone forcibly opened the back door of a residence. It is unknown if entry was made into the residence.
