Cops were Ready, but No One was Home

St. LOUIS (KMOX) –  Shortly before  4:00 a.m. a domestic dispute on St. Louis’ south side, turned ugly and ended up with police and a SWAT team surrounding a home on Minnesota Avenue. 

Police believed they had a hostage situation on their hands involving the young child of the female victim who was pistol whipped earlier.  

When police finally entered the home, they found the youngster but the gunman apparently got out before the cops arrived.

St. Louis police are looking the suspect.
