STL police arrest 1 in officer-involved shooting

Police have made an arrest in connection with an officer-involved shooting in north St. Louis

ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Metropolitan Police investigated an early morning officer-involved shooting in north St. Louis Saturday.

Just after midnight Saturday morning, officers were called out to the 5900 block of Goodfellow to respond to a call for 'shots fired.' Upon arriving on the scene, responding officers spotted their suspect entering a Dodge Challenger, who then drove towards the patrol car. The suspect struck the car once, and one of the responding officers fired a single shot at the Challenger.

The suspect fled the scene shortly afterward.

An unannounced time later, a 27-year-old woman arrived at an area hospital emergency room suffering from a gunshot wound to her hand and shoulder. Officers interviewed the woman and determined she was a passenger in the Dodge Challenger. She was listed in stable condition.

The suspect was taken into custody late Saturday morning without incident. He was identified Monday as 23-year-old Edward Montgomery. He was charged with two counts of first-degree assault. He is being held on $200,000, cash only bond.

No officers were injured in the incident. Officials placed the officer who fired the shot on administrative leave, a company policy.
