St. Louis Officer Shoots Suspect in Arm, Foot
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 19-year-old suspect is in stable condition after being shot in the arm and foot during an exchange of gunfire with St. Louis police.
Authorities say officers were on patrol Wednesday night when they saw the teen firing shots in a grassy area between two homes.
They ordered him to drop the weapon, and the suspect ran. Police followed, and the suspect allegedly turned and fired a shot at police. One officer returned fire, striking the suspect.
The officers were not hurt. The officer who fired the shot is on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.
No charges have been filed against the suspect as the investigation continues
