Shots fired during St. Louis County traffic stop

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV) -- Police opened fire on the occupants of a car Friday afternoon during a routine traffic stop in north St. Louis County.

The incident unfolded when St. Louis County police pulled over a white 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo around 2 p.m. near the intersection of Chambers Road and Empire Drive.

As the cops got out to approach the car, the driver of the vehicle put it into reverse, rammed the cop car, then swerved twice trying to strike each of the cops.

Police shot twice at the car, but the driver sped away.

One suspect is believed to be in custody, but there is no information right now on when or where he was caught.

Police initially thought the suspect fled to a nearby apartment complex near Chambers and Halls Ferry roads, but a search of the complex turned up nothing.

We will keep you updated on KMOV.com as more information comes in.
