Officer-involved shooting in St. Louis

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – A suspect is in the hospital after an officer-involved shooing in St. Louis.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says the incident began after police received reports that someone was trying to break into a car. When officers arrived the suspects started running, a police say at least one of them pointed a gun at the officers and tried to shoot, but his gun misfired. The chase continued, winding through alleys and vacant lots with the suspects and police exchanging gunfire.

Chief Dotson said the officers followed their training for this situation, “they used restraint, and it wasn’t until they were fired upon that they began firing their weapons.”

Police did hit the suspect. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. A few dozen protesters gathered at the scene, with some shouting at officers.
