Confrontation involving off-duty officer leads to shooting
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say a confrontation between an off-duty officer and a St. Louis bar patron has led to a shooting that apparently injured them both.
Police say the officer was hit in the wrist and arm around 1:30 a.m. Friday. Four officers were in the bar at the time of the shooting. Police say that after the officer was hit, another officer returned fire, striking another man in the legs and shoulder.
