Officer shot in south St. Louis

Mayor Francis Slay said the officer did nothing to provoke an attack. That officer is expected to recover; no information on the shooter was available. Detective Benjamin Marconi was shot and killed while writing a traffic citation just before noon outside his agency's headquarters.

After searching for the suspect, Dotson said officers eventually tracked down the suspect as he was riding in a friend's vehicle.

Police reported that officers later pulled up behind the suspect's vehicle and that he fled on foot. The suspect drove alongside the sergeant's marked vehicle and fired at him, Chief Sam Dotson of the St. Louis Police Department said.

The injured officer was reportedly not conducting a traffic stop or involved in a call when he was shot twice in the face.

To take precaution against further attacks, Dotson said all St. Louis officers will be partnered up on patrol for the foreseeable future.

An officer with the Gladstone, Missouri, police department near Kansas City was shot, while the suspect was shot and killed. Police are using helicopters, SWAT teams and other resources in the search for the suspect.

Police said they knew Bush by name and believe he could be connected to several robberies, possibly a carjacking and homicide, from St. Louis City to St. Louis County. "This officer was driving down the road and was ambushed by an individual who pointed a gun at him from inside of his vehicle and shot out the police officer's window".

"This is everyone's worst nightmare", McManus said.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said the officer was ambushed in his cruiser by an individual who shot out his window.

"Fortunately for him, and the blessing of God, the officer is going to survive tonight", Dotson said. The circumstances with the shooting was not immediately known but the officer is expected to survive.

"This just shows the dangers of policing, not only here in St. Louis but around the country".

A shooter fired at a 46-year-old cop in St. Louis and struck him twice, critically wounding him during an ambush.


In a statement Sunday following the shooting, Mayor Ivy Taylor said, "This type of crime can not and will not be tolerated".

Hours after the sergeant was shot, officers found the suspect's abandoned vehicle in an unoccupied parking garage near Laclede's Landing. He said he didn't believe the man had any relationship to the original motorist who was pulled over, and no motive has been identified. Also, a Sanibel, Florida, officer was shot in the shoulder during a traffic stop Sunday night, and was treated and released for his injuries.

In the St. Louis area, Ballwin, Missouri, officer Mike Flamion was paralyzed from the neck down after being shot during a traffic stop in July.

Late Monday night, CrimeStoppers offered a $5,000 reward for information that would lead to the arrest of the suspect.
