St. Louis officer is killed by gunfire
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
St. Louis City police officers wait to hear the fate of their colleague.
ST. LOUIS — A 22-year-old St. Louis police officer who had been with the department less than a year died late Wednesday after being shot.
As of sunrise today, no suspects had been arrested.
The shooting happened in an alley in the 1600 block of Semple Avenue in the north part of the city.
The officer, identified as Norvelle Brown, was apparently trying to detain a suspect when he was shot, Police Chief Joe Mokwa said.
An aerial and ground search for what police sources said might have been multiple gunmen began almost immediately after the shooting, reported about 9:50 p.m. Searchers cordoned off Semple Avenue between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Cote Brilliante Avenue.
Brown was wearing a bulletproof vest but the bullet entered through his armpit, hit his lung and apparently pierced an artery, according to sources. Advertisement
The injured officer radioed that he needed help, and an undercover officer who quickly arrived at the scene performed CPR on him and then raced him to Barnes-Jewish Hospital in the back of a squad car, Mokwa said.
Mokwa and Mayor Francis Slay somberly announced the officer's death just after 11 p.m. to a crowd of officers and reporters gathered outside the emergency room at Barnes.
Mokwa and Slay said relatives of the officer had been brought to the hospital under police escort.
"It's very difficult for the department," Slay said. "Our prayers are with his family and this police department. From our standpoint, everything will be done to catch the individual or individuals responsible."
At the shooting scene, a search involving dozens of officers continued overnight. High-powered lights were trucked in and trained on the alley where Brown was gunned down.
"We have some information we're looking into — nothing solid," said Mokwa.
Friends who gathered outside the hospital described Brown as a dedicated officer who volunteered as a youth coach with the Police Athletic League.
"He was just a very positive person. He worked with kids and the kids loved him," said Gwendolyn Cherry Sims, who also helps with Police Athletic League.The opinions given in my posts DO NOT reflect the opinions, views, policies, and/or procedures of my employing agency.
