One in custody after shots fired at officers in Pine Lawn

PINE LAWN, MO (KPLR) - One person is in custody after shots were fired at police officers Tuesday night in Pine Lawn.

The shooting happened around 8:00 p.m. in the 4200 block of Oakwood.

North County Police Cooperative Chief Tim Swope said officers were finishing a domestic call when shots were fired at them.

"The officers were actually finishing up the call when they started getting shot at- several rounds- they could hear them going overhead and hitting the ground," Swope said.

They immediately took cover and spotted a suspect vehicle as it fled south to Natural Bridge.

During the pursuit, officers with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department were able to stop the suspect vehicle near Kingshighway and Page. One person was taken into custody, but police are looking for at least one more suspect.

"We have one at large," Swope said. "We’re still trying to identify who that person is, but no one was injured, thankfully; very close call. Difficult times out here, you know, so hopefully we can find the persons involved and put an end to it as soon as we can."
