A judge could rule to order the release of body camera footage in the Andrew Brown Jr. case; Fox News contributor Ted Williams provides insight on ‘America’s Newsroom.’

A Missouri police officer was shot Thursday during a traffic stop but was expected to recover, authorities said. 

The St. Peters Police Department said one of its officers was shot around 5:40 p.m. in the 3000 block of Mid Rivers Mall Drive in the St. Louis suburb.

The officer was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Authorities did not disclose what led to the shooting.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol issued a Blue Alert for a Blue Chevy Trailblazer connected to the suspect, who was later taken into custody.


Calls to the police department and Highway Patrol from Fox News were not immediately returned.
