The search is on for two men who shot at police with assault rifles. Police say this happened overnight at the corner of Washington Avenue and Tucker Street. Investigators got a call for help at club Lure after a disturbance. When police arrived two men started shooting at police. The suspects got away and there are no reports of injures.
Washington Avenue is a hot nightspot. Police are hoping because of that someone will call police with some key information in this investigation. Residents who live along Washington Avenue tell me club Lure is a popular club along the strip. They also say on Thursday night Washington Avenue is packed with people coming and leaving the club. Some people we talked to complained of the noise coming from the club on those nights; however this appears to be the first shooting at the club. If you have any information in this case you are urged to call the St. Louis Police Department.
