(KMOV) – Police are searching for a suspect after a driver fired a shot at a Dellwood police officer in the 2900 block of Sullivan in north St. Louis Tuesday night.

Officials say the incident began at the Family Dollar in Ferguson when police went after a suspect accused of shoplifting. The suspect tried to run over the policeman when they attempted to stop him.

Dellwood police joined in the chase soon afterward.

When the chase reached Sullivan, the suspect fired a shot that struck a hole in the Dellwood officer’s windshield. The officer was not injured. The suspect reportedly fled the scene on foot.
Police do not have a good description of that suspect.

Dozens of officers were in the area with dogs on foot, searching for the suspect who fled the scene. Police did make one arrest of a woman who was in the car with the suspect.

No injuries were reported.
