(KMOV.com) – Police are searching for two suspects for their alleged involvement in an armed robbery in the Southampton neighborhood late Saturday night.

“I was taken back at first because I was like ‘What’s going on?’ I didn’t know anything as going on until the sheriff was running with his pistol out,” said Jeremy Stahlhuth, a resident in the area. “I heard somebody in the backyard and the tail lights were coming on and my wife said ‘I heard a gunshot.’”

St. Louis police say the deputy fired one shot, missing the suspects who were fleeing on Murdoch near Macklind.

“It’s been a while since we’ve had anything serious gone on over here,” said Stahlhuth. “It’s a pretty quiet neighborhood and we like to keep it that way.”

News 4 reached out to the sheriff’s office for a comment about the incident, but they have not returned any calls.

Police are searching for a white Chevy Malibu. The investigation is ongoing.
