Looks like he may have been shot in his car, just like the other officer in San Antonio today.

ST. LOUIS • A St. Louis police sergeant was shot in the face near Hampton and Pernod avenues around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Police said he was shot twice, was conscious, was in serious condition but was expected to live.

Hampton was blocked off in both directions at Pernod.

The officer’s SUV was in the left lane on Hampton facing north. Shattered glass from the driver’s side window could be seen on the street.

The officer was being treated at Barnes Jewish Hospital, where Police Chief Sam Dotson was expected to make a statement before 9 p.m.

Mayor Francis Slay tweeted that he was on his way to the hospital.

The site was by St. Joan of Arc School and a half block north of the St. Louis Police Officers Association Union Hall.


Just as with the shooting in San Antonio, suspect pulled up to the officer while officer was in car, then shot him.
