ST. CLAIR COUNTY — A gunman killed a man in his neighborhood Sunday afternoon, then shot and seriously injured a Dupo police officer before barricading himself in his garage for an hourslong standoff with police, authorities said.
• UPDATE: Gunman who killed co-worker, injured Dupo officer was convicted in 2009 death
The standoff ended about 10 p.m. Sunday after officers found the man, Reginald Allen, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his garage in the 700 block of McBride Avenue, said Master Sgt. Brad Clossen of the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department. Clossen said Allen was in his 40s.
The incident began about 1:20 p.m. Sunday when a man was found shot to death in a yard in the 400 block of McBride Avenue. That man’s name has not been released. Allen and the victim had worked together, but Clossen said the motive for the killing is unclear.
After the shooting, the suspect took off on a Bobcat, a piece of construction equipment, and headed down McBride Avenue toward Interstate 255. Dispatchers warned that the gunman was seen carrying what looked like an AK-47.
A Dupo police officer was the first officer to arrive.
The Bobcat was left under the highway, and the Dupo officer got out of his patrol car to confront the gunman, police said. That’s when the gunman shot the officer in the shoulder and neck, Clossen said.
The officer was rushed to a hospital, where he underwent surgery, Clossen said. The last update he heard was that the officer’s condition was serious, Clossen said Monday.
After shooting the officer, the gunman jumped into the officer’s patrol car and drove away — with the officer’s rifle still inside. The gunman drove the patrol car a short distance and parked it in his driveway next to his garage in the 700 block of McBride, Clossen said.
