The woman suspected of opening fire on police officers Friday in downtown St. Louis has been released from jail without being charged with a crime.
Police arrested the 54-year-old woman after she allegedly traded gunfire with officers around 9:45 a.m. in the 700 block of N. 16th Street. Police were called there after the woman allegedly threatened to shoot up the Social Security Administration office.
When officers arrived, the woman, who was inside a gold Toyota minivan with racial slurs spray painted on it, told police that she was going to shoot up the office. At that point, officers called for backup.
A sergeant was standing at the woman’s door and trying to convince her to get out of the car when she fired her gun, police said. Officers returned fire.
The shooting was captured on a bystander’s cellphone.
Nobody was struck. Following the exchange, the woman threw the gun from the car and surrendered, police said.
The woman was arrested again on Tuesday.
