ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A 47-year-old man is jailed after allegedly shooting at police during a standoff in St. Charles.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1iEBOk5 ) reports that the standoff began before 1 a.m. Sunday after the man’s girlfriend asked for a police escort to a home as she collected some items. Police say that as officers approached the door, the man began to fire at them.

One officer fired back, then officers waited for a SWAT team to arrive.

Police say the man fired another two rounds at a police armored vehicle during negotiations. After about an hour, police used tear gas and the man eventually surrendered.

Police did not release the man’s name but say he is charged with four counts of assault on a law enforcement officer. No officers were injured.
