Insurance: Uninsured Motorist-Drive-by Shooting-Missouri Law

Where the widow of a man killed in a drive-by shooting sought damages under the uninsured-motorist provisions of the couple’s automobile liability policy, the district court properly granted summary judgment to the insurer because any liability of the uninsured motorist and his occupants did not arise from the use of the vehicle. The shots just happened to come from an uninsured vehicle, so the judgment is affirmed.

Judgment is affirmed.
