PINE LAWN, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Police are asking for help locating a teenager accused of assaulting a Pine Lawn Police Officer Sunday night.

According to police, the officer was working at secondary job at the Skate King, located in the 2700 block of Kienlen Avenue, when he heard multiple gunshots coming from across the street around 7:00 p.m. The officer, believing a crime was being committed, headed towards the intersection of Creston and Stillwell.

As the officer headed towards the intersection, he heard more gunshots, screeching car tires and saw glass being shot out of a passing vehicle. The officer then heard a woman scream and was confronted by 17-year-old Tyreece Young, according to police.

When the officer announced he was with police, Young pointed a silver handgun at him, police say. The officer, fearing for his life, then fired two gunshots at Young.

After the shots were fired, Young ran to a gray Ford Taurus and entered the passenger side of the vehicle, which made a U-turn and left the scene.

Police do not believe either of the shots fired from the officer struck Young.

Young is wanted for assaulting a law enforcement officer. Anyone with information on the Pine Lawn resident is asked to contact the St. Louis County Police Department or CimeStoppers.

Last month Young was charged with marijuana and unlawful use of a weapon.
