MetroLink Officer Shot – Police Shoot Suspect


ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A St. Louis Metrolink station is temporarily shut down–after a man shoots a security officer.

It happened Thursday (Nov. 17) when the security guard followed a man he noticed didn’t pay a fare.

That’s when the 22-year-old suspect suddenly turned and shot the security officer in the shoulder.

Two St. Louis County were arriving on a train when they heard the shots and chased after the suspect.

Police say he ignored their commands to stop, so they shot him three times.

The suspect was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

The security guard’s injury meanwhile, is said to be non-life threatening.

Metrolink suspended some train service after the shooting but was back up and running a few hours later.
