Saint Louis University Security Officer Fires Shots at SUV
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police are investigating after a security officer at Saint Louis University fired shots at an SUV that he believed was trying to hit him.
KSDK-TV reports that it happened about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday when the officer spotted a Chevy Trailblazer, approached and saw a man sitting in the passenger seat. Another man was running nearby.
The officer reported that moments later, the pair drove the Trailblazer at the officer, who opened fire and shattered the rear window of the SUV, which drove away. The officer was not hurt.
The university says in a statement that it was the first time in at least 20 years that one of its security officers discharged a weapon in the line of duty.
