Two U.S. Marshals, One Cop Wounded in St. Louis Shootout
Suspect Shot Dead in Standoff, Tells Cops 'I'm Only Going Out in a Body Bag'

Two U.S. marshals and a St. Louis police officer were wounded in a shootout with a suspect they were attempting to arrest today.

The standoff ended with the suspect shot to death and the three law enforcement officers taken to the hospital, St. Louis police said.

The officers were attempting to serve an arrest warrant at the suspect's home in the St. Louis suburb called Dutchtown, when the man opened fire with a semi-automatic pistol as the officers tried to enter the home.

One marshal was shot in the head, sources told ABC News. He is alive but in critical condition. The second marshal is believed to have been shot in the leg or foot.

A shot fired at the St. Louis police officer ricocheted off his bullet-proof vest and entered his shoulder. He appears to have suffered a broken shoulder, sources said.

When authorities arrived at the suspect's home, he told them, "I'm only going out in a body bag," ABC News radio affiliate KTRS reported.

Three children were removed from the home before shots were fired.
