Woman Suspected Of Shooting At Missouri Police Released Without Charges
Officials at the St. Louis City Justice Center have confirmed that a woman suspected of trading gunfire with police officers on Friday in downtown St Louis, Missouri, has been released from jail with no charges filed against her, Christine Byers reports for KSDK. The women allegedly arrived at a Social Security Administration office in a van covered in racial slurs and threatened to “shoot up” the office. The woman opened fire on responding officers from inside her vehicle in an exchange caught on video.
“I’m pretty sure that nobody was aware that she had a gun and her mental state. I mean this really could have got bad,” St. Louis PD Lieutenant John Green said. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
