Authorities say a St. Louis police officer who was shot in the head while responding to a shooting on the city’s south side has died.
Twenty-nine-year-old Tamarris L. Bohannon had been with the department for nearly four years.
St. Louis Police Department spokeswoman Officer Michelle Woodling says a second officer who was shot in the leg was treated and released after the shooting around 6 p.m. Saturday in the South Grand neighborhood.
The gunman barricaded himself inside a home and police negotiated with him for nearly 12 hours before the 43-year-old was taken into custody Sunday morning.
Police have released no details about his arrest.
