The threat is over.

The manhunt for a suspect wanted in connection with the early morning shooting of two Jefferson County sheriff officers has been shot and killed by police.

Forty year old Sean Nims was being sought after he opened fire on police during a search of a home on Twin Ridge Road in Cedar Hills at about 2 a.m. 

Police responded to what the residents said was an accidental medical alert call. After being given permission to search the home, police encountered the gunman who fled the area on foot after the shooting. Nims had outstanding warrants in the area.

Shortly before 8:30 a.m., police found Nims hiding at the home of a female friend. When confronted, he refused to put down his military assault-style weapon.

The injured officers, meanwhile, were treated at a hospital and released.

   The same Aldermanic committee that approved developer Paul McKee's TIF deal earlier this week, is also backing a tax abatement for St. Louis' Union Station.  

   The Housing, Urban Development and Zoning Committee on Thursday approved the 20 year financing plan for Lodging Hospitality Management, which owns the downtown landmark.  

   LHM is planning a $66 million dollar makeover of the former train station that will convert some retail space into offices, repair the train shed, and add excursion rail service.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that two special taxing districts, each with a 1-cent sales tax, already cover the station. In addition, the owner is entitled to $3.5 million in sales tax rebates spread over 20 years.

   "Hopeful," that's how Congresswoman Ann Wagner describes Thursday's meeting between GOP leaders and President Barack Obama.  

   The two sides got together to discuss the government shutdown and the looming debt ceiling deadline.  The St. Louis County Republican was one of 18 GOP lawmakers who attended the 90-minute meeting at the White House.  

   Wagner told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that toning down the rhetoric that has accompanied the dispute was one area where both sides agreed.   "We can't be fear-mongering and talking in ways that make our markets react," she said.

A former wrestler at Lindenwood University if accused of exposing a former student to HIV.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Michael Johnson faces a charge of "recklessly risking infection of another when infected with HIV." The victim said he met Johnson through social media. Health officials say that although chances of contracting HIV through exchange of bodily fluids while wrestling are extremely rare, anybody who had contact with Johnson should consider consulting a physician.

Investigators are asking anybody that may have been in an intimate relationship with Johnson to contact the St. Charles County Police.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Springfield man will serve life in prison without the possibility of parole for his role in the shooting death of a 17-year-old high school student.

Jordan Martin was sentenced Thursday for first-degree murder in the March 2010 death of Kody Ray. The victim was shot on the porch of his Springfield home, where a birthday party for a 5-year-old was being held.

Prosecutors say Martin persuaded another man, James Duke, to shoot Ray.

They say Martin and Ray were part of an earlier brawl and Martin believed Ray talked to school administrators about the fight.

Martin's attorney argued he didn't know Duke intended to shoot Ray.

Duke is also serving life in prison for shooting Ray.
