ST. LOUIS (AP) - A suspect shot by St. Louis police in a confrontation after a traffic stop is now facing charges.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/2b595Tq ) reports that 22-year-old Antoine Boone is charged with tampering with a motor vehicle and resisting arrest. He is jailed on $100,000 cash-only bond.

Police say Boone and another man were in a stolen Jeep Grand Cherokee Tuesday and fled when police tried to pull them over. Spike strips were used to puncture the tires.

Police say Boone ran into an alley with a gun and refused to drop it and allegedly turned toward the officer who shot Boone in the hip.

Boone was treated and released at a hospital. The second suspect is still at large.

The officer is on administrative leave.
