ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A south St. Louis armed robbery investigation, Friday night, ended with an officer-involved shooting in north St. Louis County.
City Police Chief Sam Dotson says his officer shot and wounded a 24-year-old male suspect wanted for violating parole, “Officers attempted to tase one individual. The taser didn’t have any effect. That individual turned and pointed a gun at police. One officer (33-year-old male with 9 years on the force) fired. Suspect was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries.”
Chief Dotson says two males, ages 18 and 21, were also taken into custody.
Charges issued Saturday afternoon:
-Daryl Greer, 24 years of age, of the 5900 block of Laurette Avenue, charged with one count of Assault 1st Degree or Attempt – Serious Physical Injury or Special Victim, one count of Armed Criminal Action, one count of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, one count of Resisting/Interfering with Arrest for a Felony, and one count of Possession of a Defaced Firearm. The charges were issued by the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office with a $200,000 cash only bond.
-Matthew Smith, 21 years of age, of the 1500 block of Oakfestburg, charged with one count of Resisting/Interfering with Arrest for a Felony and one count of Tampering with a Motor Vehicle in the Second Degree.

Dotson says tracking of a stolen cell phone allowed police to quickly find the men in an area near Halls Ferry and I-270 in North County.
Stop sticks were used on their car, which turned out to be a stolen vehicle taken in a carjacking incident at an earlier date.
