When a 38-year-old St. Louis woman got into a violent altercation with her boyfriend, which ended in gunfire, she returned home, shaken from an experience that could have been deadly.
A short time later, she responded to a knock at her door and saw a man on her front porch who appeared to be a police officer. Shortly after opening the door, however, she realized the man was her boyfriend in disguise.
Though a bullet she fired during the initial altercation reportedly grazed the man, he was able to escape further injury as he ran away from her home amid a hail of gunfire.
The suspect was treated for his injuries and now faces at least a charge of impersonating of officer.
