The suspect, who has not been identified, fired the handgun again, although what he was firing at is unknown, and fled into a wooded area, according to the Post-Dispatch.
Police set up a perimeter around the woods. Helicopters flew overhead. However, a homeowner, who noticed an open shed door, investigated and found the suspect asleep inside, according to the Post-Dispatch. No shots were fired as the homeowner held the suspect at gunpoint until authorities arrived, according to the Post-Dispatch.
“Great work from our community partners,” Sheriff Dave Marshak said in a tweet.
