   The Jefferson County Sheriff's office won't be getting extra cash from the state to help cover the cost of sobriety checkpoints.  That's because the County Council on Tuesday turned down a $22,000 grant from the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission.  The grant is specifically aimed boosting DUI enforcement.

   Sheriff Glenn Boyer told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it's "indicative of the dysfunction of this County Council."  

   Republican council members, who hold all but one seat, cited constitutional issues and complaints about sobriety checks from residents as the reasons they eschewed the funds.

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.
