Man shot at Cahokia Walmart drove towards officer

( KTRS ) Illinois State Police say in a report that an off-duty Washington Park officer only shot a man, at the Cahokia Walmart, after the suspect drove a car towards him.

The dead man, 35 yr old Jason Stringer, was wanted on warrants and had a history of eluding police in the past. The 53 yr old off duty officer, whose name has not released, called police about 4:50 p.m. Monday to report seeing a wanted man outside the store. Two Cahokia officers tried to take the suspect into custody but he fled after a struggle.

The report says the Washington Park officer fired “multiple shots at the suspect” hitting him at least once. Stringer was able to flee but struck a Cahokia Police car head on. He was arrested and taken to a hospital, where he died.

The investigation is ongoing. Autopsy results are pending.
