The Explosives and K9 units responded to the scene, according to KMOV’s Kelly Davis.

A neighbor told the Post-Dispatch that they saw cops bring two men and one woman out of the home.

Witnesses said the shots came from across the street from the police station.

UPDATE: MSNBC reports that police have taken three people in for questioning.
