An off-duty St. Louis cop was accidentally shot by a colleague as a gun battle raged nearby between police and a band of suspected auto thieves. Three people inside the stolen auto then opened fire at the pursuing officers, striking police vehicles. Officers chased after the white sedan and used spoke strips at one point. Black didn't release the officer's name or details on the crash, but he said he was in serious condition.

They ran after the vehicle until it crashed, while the men tried to get out of it and ran away on foot. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, a stolen auto crashed near the off-duty officer's home, and he came outside with his service weapon to help. Despite identifying himself as a cop, the man was ordered to the ground by two officers. The third officer reportedly did not recognize the off-duty officer and, fearing for his safety, fired his gun, striking the off-duty officer in the arm. The paper also reported that police initially claimed that the 38-year-old African American officer, who has been on the force for 11 years, was "caught in the crossfire". Enough time to perhaps recognize a colleague as did the officers who allowed him to get up and walk.

But another officer, an unnamed 36-year-old who has been with the department for 8 years, arrived at the scene and immediately opened fire.

As for the three suspects - all teens - in the stolen vehicle incident in St. Louis, two were captured at the scene, one having been shot in the ankle in the crossfire.

Two of the suspects were apprehended, while the third remains at large.

As a result of this incident 7 officers have been placed on administrative leave while the situation is being investigated.

Pence said in a Tweet released by the police department that he'd spoken with the officer's wife and was "so relieved his injuries are not life-threatening". He had just finished his shift, and had his service weapon out, chasing a man who had broken into his auto, police said.

Prosecutors charged Deandre Chaney and Cortney Smith with seven counts of first-degree assault, seven counts of armed criminal action, felony fleeing, and tampering. Both were held in lieu of $500,000 cash-only bail.

Mayor Lyda Krewson came to Barnes-Jewish along with O'Toole.

No word on why the officer showed up to the scene and immediately pegged his colleague as a suspect, opening fire, but we have a pretty good idea.

The scene is in the North Pointe neighborhood.
