Police shoot, kill suspect after officers say he pointed a gun at them

(KTRS) – One suspect is dead after a police-involved shooting.

The incident began when tactical units were serving a search warrant at a home near the intersection of Walton and Page in north St. Louis. When officers entered the home, two suspects ran. During the chase, one of those suspects pointed a gun at officers and police say he refused commands to drop the weapon. Two officers fired a total of four shots, hitting the suspect. He died at the scene. That suspect is described as a black male in his 20’s.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said police were in the area because there has been a recent outbreak of violence in the neighborhood. In the past week Dotson said one woman was killed nearby and last week a Tuskegee Airman was robbed at the same intersection.

Dotson says one additional suspect is on the loose, but they have only a vague description of what that suspect was wearing.

Police say that there were no other injuries.
