An investigation is underway after St. Louis County police officers shot at someone during a traffic stop.

Just before 5 PM police pulled a car over for a traffic violation. While officers were approaching the car, a passenger got out of the car. The police noticed that man was holding a gun and shot at him. The suspect dropped the weapon and ran away, but he was captured a short time later.

The driver of the car was also taken into custody. It is not known if the armed suspect was hit.

A St. Louis man redefined the phrase, out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Clayton police were conducting a traffic stop when the suspect jumped out of his car and started run. He just didn't have a very good sense of direction...he ran across the street and directly into the St. Louis County Police headquarters.

Officers inside the building took the man into custody and charges are pending.

   Madison County authorities want to hear from anyone who may have witnessed a traffic stop along Godfrey Road just south of the Jersey County border about 6 p.m. Friday.  That's where a 17 year old girl reported being pulled over by a man in a large, white car who may have been impersonating a police officer.  

   The man is described as a white male, about 30 to 40 years old, about 6'1' to 6'3' with a brown crew cut, no facial hair and wearing a blue button-up shirt and dark pants.

   Madison County Sheriffs Captain Mike Dixon says investigators don't know yet if the man was an impostor, but it's important they find out.  

   Dixon says they suspect the man was impersonating an officer because his car had only a flashing blue light, when real police usually have both red and blue or just red lights.

   But he also cautions that police do use unmarked cars to make traffic stops.  Dixon says if anyone feels uneasy after being pulled over, they should call 9-1-1.

A Kansas City man is facing up to thirty years in prison after a traffic stop in St. Charles County led to felony enticement charges.

Twenty-one year old Dominique Carter allegedly met a 13 year old girl through a smart-phone dating "app."

Police say he enticed her to send him semi-nude photos, and then pick her up at her St. Peter's home. But a short distance away, he was stopped by police for failing to use a turn signal.

St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lomar told Fox 2 News that it was just luck that led to Carter's arrest. "The only way that the officer was able to come into contact with these folks in the first place," Lomar said, "was the fact that the defendant committed a routine traffic violation."

Besides the enticement charge, Carter is also charged with sexual misconduct and child endangerment. He's jailed in St. Charles County on a $50,000 dollar cash-only bond.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A suspect is dead after being shot and killed by police in St. Louis.

The shooting happened Thursday night near the Mississippi River. The suspect is identified as 32-year-old Jason Noroian of Des Peres.

Police say Port Authority officials reported two suspicious vehicles. After they were stopped, officers learned that an occupant of one of the vehicles had a warrant out for his arrest.

As the officer approached to arrest the man, he allegedly reached for the officer's gun and got it out of the holster. The men struggled and the officer tried to shoot, but the gun misfired.

When the man reached again for the gun, the officer fired again, hitting the man in the side. He died at a hospital.

An internal investigation is under way.
