A gunman fired at two police officers in St. Louis early Thursday morning, striking the two officers in the chest. Luckily, the officers’ bulletproof vests prevented serious injury from occurring, but the suspect is still on the loose.

According to a local Fox affiliate, the officers will be all right, after the gunman shot them in the chests with a handgun.

Further reports indicated that the gunman had barricaded himself inside his St. Louis home, possibly with an assault rifle:

A staging area for first responders and media is set up at a church located a quarter of a mile away. There is a heavy police presence at Chambers and Bellefontaine. Traffic is closed to the neighborhoods surrounding the standoff. Many people saw officers from many police departments rush to the scene on I-70 during their commute.

Initial reports stated that the suspect was armed with a rifle. Investigators say the suspect is well known to police. They say the suspect may own an AR-15 rifle.
