St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch says Williams told authorities he was firing at someone else, with whom he was in a dispute.

Jeff Roorda with the St. Louis Police Officers Association has visited one of the injured officers, who was glad to hear of the arrest.

(Roorda) "His family are particularly relieved. It's not easy to be sitting at home knowing that a guy is at large that did you harm and to have him behind bars is comforting."

McCulloch says Williams used a handgun that matches the shell casings at the scene.
