A deputy marshal who was critically injured Tuesday morning while trying to arrest a man in St. Louis, died from his wounds Tuesday night around 7 p.m., the St. Louis Post Dispatch reported.
The paper identified the slain deputy U.S. Marshal as John Perry, 48, who had been with the agency for almost 10 years.
A second deputy marshal, Theodore Abegg, 31, was shot in the ankle and was in fair condition, the Post-Dispatch reported. And a St. Louis cop suffered injuries when he was grazed by a bullet after the shot deflected from his vest. He was treated at a hospital and released.
The law enforcement team had gone to arrest Carlos Boles, who opened fire on them. He was wanted for assault on a police officer and drug charges.
He was killed by returning fire, the Post Dispatch reported.
