BREAKING: Thugs Shoot St. Louis Officer Multiple Times In Face

Sunday night, a St. Louis police officer was shot multiple times in the face. Around 7:30 pm, the suspect drove up to the officer’s marked police vehicle and fired, shooting into the vehicle. The officer was clearly targeted.

When officers and first responders arrived at the scene, the injured officer was sitting in the front seat of his vehicle, seatbelt still fastened and gun still holstered. According to Police Chief Sam Dotsan, this shows that this was a cold-blooded attempt to murder the officer. “He didn’t have time to react to this threat,” Dotsan said. Mayor Francis Slay agreed. At a press conference after the shooting, Slay said, “He was targeted because he was a police officer. He didn’t stop anybody. He didn’t point a gun at anybody. All of us as a community have to do what we can to help find this guy.”

The officer was taken to Barnes Jewish Hospital, where thankfully, he is expected to survive… despite suffering horrific injuries. He was shot twice in the face.

While the officer has not been named, the department has released some details, like his age and how long he has served:

The shooting happened just half a block from the St. Louis Police Officers Association Union Hall. Officials begged the community to help find the person responsible for the heinous crime, and it didn’t take long for the tips to come in. Officers located the suspect early on Monday morning, when a female picked him up and took him to the intersection of Smiley Ave and Leola Ave. It was there that he noticed he was being followed, and exited the vehicle before opening fire on the officers. The officers engaged him, and he was killed in the ensuing gunfight. His name has not been released.
