St. Louis man facing charges for shooting at officersPosted on 6 October 2017 at 7:08pm
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis man is facing charges for allegedly shooting at city police officers.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 60-year-old Gregory Shegog was charged Thursday with four counts of first-degree assault, four counts of armed criminal action and one count of unlawful gun possession. He is jailed on $200,000 cash-only bond and does not yet have an attorney.
Police were called to a south St. Louis home Wednesday night. Two officers say they told Shegog to drop a gun, but he shot at them and missed. One of the officers returned fire but also missed.
Police say Shegog ran to a home and returned, pointing his gun at two other officers. The gun misfired and Shegog went inside, prompting a standoff that ended peacefully when he was arrested.
