ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- St. Louis Police are investigating a shooting that occurred Thursday night when a man shot at officers in north St. Louis.

At approximately 9 p.m., officers were traveling northbound on Riverview when they heard multiple gun shots coming from the 1500 block of Eton Lane. As the officers approached the block, they heard additional gun shots and observed a vehicle stopped in the middle of the street. A male suspect flourished a gun at the officers, police said Friday.

Officers fired shots before the suspect fled. He was eventually located and taken into custody. 

An investigation determined that the vehicle was reported to be taken in a 1st degree robbery in Moline Acres in November. A search of the area found another handgun that was recovered in the 1500 block of Eton Lane. 

There were no injuries to the officer or suspect.
