Passengers stood up from the sunroof and fired when police chased a silver-colored Audi SUV in South Jefferson on Wednesday, police said.
According to police, it was around noon, the first of two separate cases in which people fired at police officers. In both cases, police officers were driving unmarked vehicles.
In South Jefferson, Audi drew police attention because the temporary tag had expired, according to a news release. The SUV driver made a quick U-turn on the 2200 blocks between Anne Avenue and Shenando Avenue. Police say one of the two SUVs shot from the sunroof of an unmarked vehicle when they overtook a police officer.
According to his release, a 32-year-old police officer fired. No one was attacked on either side, and police chased Audi north before the SUV was caught in a traffic jam along the edge of Gateway Arch National Park near Pine Street and Memorial Drive.
According to police, police arrested two people, 17 and 23, without any other problems. Audi’s search found a .40 caliber Glock pistol and a 50 round drum style magazine.
In another incident in town, police say there was a 29-year-old shothole in an unmarked SUV early Thursday morning. Police say the man was on the sidewalk near Goodfellow Boulevard and Sherry Avenue just before 1am and shot two other cars when police drove. According to police, the man then shot and killed two police officers and continued firing when they parked, went out and shot back.
According to the release, police officers wore plain clothes other than ballistic vests with “POLICE” printed on them.
After the shootout, the man boarded a white sedan, ran through the yard and around a concrete barricade, police say. Officers later found the man and the currently disabled vehicle about a mile north of Park Lane and Switzer Avenue in the North Pointe district. He was arrested.
Neither he nor the policeman was beaten in the previous shootout.
