ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Another officer involved shooting in St. Louis. It’s the second in the city in as many days and the third when you count the one in Jennings.
Thursday evening, ironically near a police sub station, a man pulled a gun on a convenience store employee.

A second employee went next door and told police who then spotted the suspect’s car and gave chase. He fled on foot, flourished a gun, and was shot near Spring and Palm.

His gun and money were recovered and he’s now hospitalized in stable condition.

On Wednesday St. Louis Police shot and killed a suspect who turned a gun on them in the 5300 block of Union, and on Wednesday night St. Louis County detectives shot and wounded a man suspected of drug dealing at a home on Hathaway.
