A suburban St. Louis police officer is in surgery after being shot by a suspect inside a police vehicle, apparently with a gun police failed to confiscate.

Images from SkyFOX helicopter show a police vehicle crashed into the Arnold Police Department.

The incident reportedly began around 12:30 a burglary call in a residential area.

Police said the suspect, Chad Klahs, was arrested after a burglary and shooting investigation. The suspect was caught a short time later at Zingers Mart, a convenience store at a Phillips 66 gas station on Jeffco Blvd. - just two miles from the Arnold police station.

Authorities say 29-year-old Chad Klahs of Arnold died Tuesday after shooting Arnold, Missouri, officer Ryan O'Connor in the head.

This evening, the sheriff of Jefferson county said there is, "Always a lot of speculation into police shootings". Arnold police learned that a gun had been stolen from a home.
