Man Fires at Officers, Finally Surrenders

KINLOCH, MO. (KMOX) – A man is in custody after firing shots at police Friday night.

Police in Ferguson spotted his vehicle last night and tried to pull it over on Airport Road.

At that point a woman who was in the car with him either jumped out or was thrown out and the suspect sped off.   He wrecked the vehicle in Berkeley , jumped out and fired shots at police.  Officers returned fire.  No one was hit.

The suspect then went into a home in Kinloch where he was hold-up for several hours until he finally gave himself up to a SWAT team.
