March 01, 2011  | 

A St. Louis Police officer responding to a prowler call early Tuesday was disarmed during a physical struggle with the suspect, who shot the officer with his service weapon, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The officer arrived at the 5200 block of St. Louis Avenue at about 1 a.m. Tuesday to find a man who had been stabbed. The officer entered the home and chased the suspect, who was able to wrestle the officer's gun away from him and fire one shot at him.

The suspect, 34-year-old Vernon Collins, was apprehended later with the officer's gun and faces multiple charges.

St Louis is a dump. I should know. It is the most dangerous place to live accourding to a recent servey. It also has some of the lowest payed officers and therefore, completely understaffed (L cars in St Louis?!!) These inept so - called command staff personnel should be ashamed; as should the city government.
