ST. LOUIS • Police sources said Monday that George Bush III, 19, was the man killed in a shootout with police Monday morning after allegedly wounding a police sergeant in a separate incident.
His address was listed in a pending resisting arrest case as in the 7000 block of Winona Avenue in St. Louis.
Undercover officers had found the suspect's car abandoned at a parking garage at Laclede's Landing, police said.
A woman had picked him up there and officers tracked their vehicle to the intersection of Smiley and Leola avenues in St. Louis. The suspect, about 19 years old, apparently realized he was being followed, jumped out of the car and fired a shot at the officers, striking the windshield of their pickup truck.
The suspect ran and officers pursued. He was killed in front of a house about 100 yards up the street, police said, about 12:45 a.m.
The sources said the woman had asked him for a cigarette and then given him a ride from the garage and was not involved in the crimes.
Bush was being sought for questioning in the shooting of a St. Louis police sergeant about 7:30 p.m. Sunday near Hampton and Pernod avenues. A driver had pulled up next to the sergeant's SUV and opened fire.
