St. Louis Police Shoot Robbery Suspect
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A robbery suspect is hospitalized but expected to survive after being shot by St. Louis police.
Police early Thursday spotted a vehicle carrying four men suspected in three robberies. Plain-clothed officers in an unmarked car began following the vehicle. One man got out, fired at police but missed, and ran away. He was later captured. Police continued pursuing the vehicle, and eventually the other three men got out and ran. One pointed a gun, and the officer opened fire.
The suspect was struck once in the lower back. Another of the suspects was arrested after a scuffle with police. An officer and that suspect were treated and released at a hospital.
