2 suburban St. Louis officers shot, expected to recover
ARNOLD (AP) — Two suburban St. Louis police officers suffered non-life threatening injuries when they were shot by a man while responding to a disturbance call.
Arnold police Det. Lt. James Jones said the officers were shot Friday afternoon by a 52-year-old suspect who lived at a trailer park where the disturbance was reported.
Jones said officers didn't shoot the suspect but he was taken to a hospital. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports his condition was unknown.
He says police will seek a warrant against the suspect either later Friday or Saturday.
The incident prompted a lockdown at the nearby Fox Elementary School and Early Childhood Center but those schools later resumed normal operations.
No further details were immediately available.
