One man is dead, shot by police after allegedly pulling a gun on officers near downtown St. Louis Wednesday night. It happened about 9:30 p.m. at 8th and Carr, about a block north of the Edward Jones Dome, which is a hot spot policing area.
Police say two men were in a car that sped away when police tried to pull it over. Police pursued until it crashed.
The 25 year old passenger took off on foot. Two officers chased him.
Police say the suspect pulled out a .45-caliber pistol with extended clips and pointed it them. That's when they shot him. The suspect died after being taken to a hospital.
The car's driver was taken into custody at the crash scene.
Both officers involved in the foot chase have been placed on routine administrative leave.
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) — Police say five people are dead in a shooting at an apartment complex south of Seattle, including a suspect who was shot by officers responding to the chaotic scene.
Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock says officers responded to a 9:30 p.m. Sunday emergency call in Federal Way of shots being fired.
Arriving police spotted two injured men on the ground in a parking lot and one of them reached for a gun as the officers moved in to assist them.
Schrock says officers then opened fire. The man was killed but it wasn't immediately clear if it was from police gunfire.
The other man one the ground and another man in the parking lot were found dead.
In a search of the complex, police found yet another man dead in one apartment and a slain woman in another.
There was no immediate word what set off the gunfire.
