One suspect in custody in ambush of St. Louis police sergeant
ST. LOUIS (AP) - One man was in custody Wednesday morning and three others were being sought following the ambush of a uniformed St. Louis police sergeant.
Police spokeswoman Leah Freeman on Wednesday declined to provide further details about the suspect in the shooting.
The officer, a 16-year veteran of the department, was working security as a second job when a gunman masked by a bandanna opened fire before dawn Tuesday, peppering his windshield.
The officer returned fire and Police Chief Sam Dotson said one suspect may have been wounded.
Dotson called the attack an ambush and said the officer's body armor saved his life. He was treated and released at a hospital.
The gunman emerged from a car occupied by three others before the shooting. It wasn't clear if the man in custody was the shooter.
