Police searching for man who fired shots at officers in north St. Louis

(KMOV) – Police are looking for a man who fired shots at officers while making an arrest early Saturday morning.

Police say around 3:30 a.m., officers were finishing an arrest in the area of West Florissant and Prairie when they noticed a person standing in the street with a weapon. That suspect fired at officers then fled the scene.

Police called in a K-9 unit to track the suspect. They were led to a four-family flat in the 2100 block of Linton.

Just after 7:30 a.m., police say they cleared the building of residents and did a full search, but did not locate the suspect.

No injuries were reported, and the investigation is ongoing.

Officers say they never returned fire.
