UNIVERSITY CITY, MO (KTVI)– Four University City men are facing serious charges over a drug deal that would have netted less than $50.
The men were arrested Tuesday in a drug sting in U-City that ended with gunfire.
Court documents state the men were making a deal to sell marijuana to an undercover officer for about $40.
When police tried to arrest them, one ran to his SUV trying to flee. That’s when police say the driver attempted to back into two officers.
One of the officers shot and wounded the driver 26-year-old Kelvin Dorries. He’s been charged with attempted to assault police and armed criminal action.
All four men also face drug possession charges.
Two of the suspects, 20-year-old Amad Mosley-Hunter and 24-year-old Vernon Bruce also face charges of resisting arrest.
Travis Bradley, 34, was charged with possession of heroin.
