Chief Dotson Calls Officer Shooting An “Ambush”

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  The shooting of a St. Louis Police officer in the Central West End is being called an ambush.

That’s according to St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson in Tuesday morning’s shooting of a 39-year-old police sergeant.  Dotson said that the officer was in his personal car, in full uniform, while working a secondary job when four African-American males approached and one of them opened fire on the officer. This happened shortly before 5 a.m. near the intersection of  North Euclid and Maryland.

Dotson said the officer returned fire and may have shot one of the suspects. Three of the suspects are believed to have fled in a silver or gray newer model Ford Taurus or Ford Focus.

The police officer suffered non-life threatening injuries. Anyone with any information is urged to contact St. Louis Police.
