JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri- This morning, Governor Eric Greitens posted about two separate incidents that Missouri law enforcement officers were met with gunfire:
“This week, officers of the St. Louis Police Department served a felony warrant for drug and gun trafficking. As they entered the house, they came under sustained fire from a suspect shooting an AK-47.
Just a few days prior, State Troopers in the Kansas City Region were met with shotgun blasts as they attempted to peaceably end an armed disturbance call.
Fortunately in both cases, our law enforcement officers did excellent work and all went home to their families without injuries.
Public safety professionals across Missouri face danger every day as they serve our communities.
I am humbled by the work you do on our behalf, and proud to stand with you.”
