Officer Shot Over Issued Ticket, Shooter Gets Huge Dose Of Karma

Police in St. Louis had a scary situation on their hands when a gunman emerged from a platform on the MetroLink, but they were able to quickly put a halt to the situation. As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, the cops shot the man three times, but not before he had wounded a security officer.

The security officer had confronted a 22-year-old man that didn’t have a ticket, and that man responded by pulling a gun.

“They heard a gunshot, they saw the security officer lying on the ground. After seeing blood, and hearing witnesses saying he was shot, then they pursued the suspect,” said St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar.

The man had attempted to flee the scene, but officers were quickly in pursuit. The suspect ignored their requests to halt, and he was subsequently shot three times. He was transported to the hospital in critical condition. The security officer was shot in the shoulder, but it was not a life-threatening injury.

Some witnesses had a vastly different take on the situation, and one witness claimed the suspect had thrown down his gun and was laying on the ground when he was shot.
