SCOTT FREE: Man Attempts to Carjack Cops at Gunpoint, No Charges Filed by Attorney’s Office

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is seeking charges for a man who attempted to carjack a police vehicle at gunpoint. The suspect was arrested but ultimately walked, despite having previous charges on his record. The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office says the case “is under investigation.”

“A spokeswoman for the police said Monday that the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office refused to file charges, the St. Louis Dispatch reported,” Fox News reports.

Police said officers responded to a report of shots fired Saturday morning at about 3 a.m. in the city. The officers in the marked police SUV said a man stepped in front of their car as it was moving, before the man stood next to the passenger’s window and pointed a gun.”

“The suspect, who was not named in local media reports, is facing other previous charges in the St. Louis area, including domestic assault, violating an order of protection and first-degree property damage, according to 5 On Your Side.”
