ST LOUIS, Missouri -- Two police officers were shot Thursday morning in north St. Louis County.
This happened in the Bellfontaine Neighbors area, and the suspect has barricaded himself in a home.
St. Louis Fox Affilliate KTVI is reporting the officers were shot in the chest, but their bullet-proof vests may have saved their lives.
The officers are conscious and speaking.
Witnesses say the suspect opened fire on the officers from about 15 feet away after they pepper-sprayed him after a scuffle on the front lawn.
