Police: Child in back seat of car at officer-involved shooting

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – Investigators say a 5-year-old girl was in the back seat of a car involved in a fatal officer-involved shooting in Wellston.

The shooting happened Saturday and the victim, Thomas Allen Jr, died on Sunday. Allen was a passenger in the car when it was pulled over for a traffic stop.

Police say that during the stop the driver and front-seat passenger were out of the car when Allen tried to drive away while the girl was in the back seat. The officer was able to get into the car. And police say that fearing for his and the child’s life, the officer fired three shots at Allen, who crashed.

The officer was treated for a leg injury. The child was unhurt.
