ST. LOUIS – Two officers came under fire in the Walnut Park West neighborhood early Thursday morning. 

The shooting happened at about 1:00 a.m. Thursday near Goodfellow Boulevard at Lalite Avenue.

There were several shell casings in the street. A car windshield was hit by a bullet and so was a nearby house.

Police said the two officers “were in plain clothes while wearing their outer ballistic vest with the words “POLICE” and in an unmarked vehicle when they observed two vehicles exchanging gunfire.”

The officers then drove down Goodfellow where they saw the suspect standing on the sidewalk. The 29-year-old male suspect “fired shots at the two aforementioned vehicles. The suspect then began firing at the unmarked police vehicle.”

Police said as the officers drove away from the bullets, “the suspect continued to fire at the officers, who returned fire, but did not strike the suspect.”

At this point, “the suspect ran to a white sedan, drove through a yard and around a concrete barricade to flee the scene.”

Police said, they received a call shortly afterwards for the area of Park Lane and Switzer Avenue in the North Pointe neighborhood. There officers found the suspect and his vehicle, “which was disabled.”

He was taken into custody without incident.

No one was injured.

FOX 2’s Nissan Rogue Runner reporter Jason Maxwell was at the scene.

The Force Investigation Unit is conducting the ongoing investigation.
