St. Louis Police announced today that they have a suspect in custody connected to the shooting of an off-duty officer this week.

On Wednesday night the officer was visiting his sister at her north St. Louis home. The officer asked to men inside the house to leave. One suspect ran out and while the officer was escorting the second man from the house, he shot at the officer. The victim was hit in the leg and the suspect ran from the scene.

The suspect was captured today and charges are pending. The officer was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A former suburban St. Louis police officer faces sentencing Dec. 20 after being convicted of corruption for telling a female motorist she could either have sex with him or face a drunk-driving arrest.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 50-year-old Timothy H. Jones of Troy, Mo., was found guilty Friday in St. Louis County Circuit Court. Prosecutors are seeking a four-year prison sentence.

Jones was an officer in Country Club Hills. Court documents show that he pulled over a 24-year-old woman on suspicion of drunken driving on Interstate 70 in 2010.

After a field-sobriety test, he allegedly told her she could either be arrested or have sex with him. Court documents say he drove her in his patrol car to her home, where they had sex.

East St. Louis Police are holding a man for allegedly attacking two officers at a crime scene.

Police say Darryl Robinson drove his car into a crime scene area on July 5. When officers with the East St. Louis Police Department and Illinois State Police tried to remove Robinson from his vehicle, they say he tried to drive off and hit two officers. The officers suffered only minor injuries, but Robinson was able to drive away. He was arrested earlier this week.

He now faces three charges connected to the incident.

WASHINGTON PARK, Ill. (AP) — A Washington Park, Illinois police officer has been accused of smuggling narcotics to a female jail inmate.

Authorities say the officer is 61-year-old Douglas Young of Lebanon. Young was arrested Thursday morning in his police uniform at the Washington Park Police Department. He has been charged with official misconduct for bringing narcotics and prescription drugs to an inmate of the St. Clair County Jail.

St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson says Young allegedly "used his position as a law enforcement officer" to arrange jail visits to a woman in custody on theft charges.

Young is being held at the St. Clair County Jail. His bond has been set at $25,000. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.

Washington Park is just east of St. Louis.
