STL Police shoot suspect in south city

   A suspect is in police custody in a local hospital after being shot by a police officer in south St. Louis Sunday afternoon.  

   Police say officers tried to question the suspect and another man near Gravois and Austria.  Both were known to officers as previous offenders.  

   The suspect fled.  Officers chased him. Police tried to stop him with a tazor, but that effort failed. 

   St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack says when the suspect reached for his waist, the officer thought he was reaching for a gun and fire at him.  The suspect was hit twice in the legs.  

   The officer is on routine administrative leave.

A suspected drug dealer is dead after he was shot by police on the St. Louis riverfront. It happened at Leonor K. Sullivan and Biddle about 6 o'clock Thursday evening.

Police say it began when the Port Authority spotted a suspicious vehicle in the area. When police ran the plates, they discovered several outstanding warrants.

Police say the suspect tried to grab an officer's gun as he approached the vehicle. There was a struggle and the officer fired one shot, hitting the man in the chest.

The suspect was rushed to the hospital where he died. His name hasn't been released.

Police say they found a gun in the suspect's vehicle.

The 28-year-old officer is now on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation. St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack says the officer has been on the force for about two years.

This is the second officer involved shooting in the City of St. Louis this year.
