ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis man fired two shots at an undercover officer this month during a drug deal set up by police, charges say.

Anthony L. Stallworth, 20, of the 2300 block of Menard Street in Soulard, was charged Thursday with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

Charges say that on Oct. 15, Stallworth fired two shots at the officer’s vehicle in the 3200 block of Gravois Avenue as they were driving to a pre-arranged location to transact fentanyl. As the officer was following Stallworth’s car to make the deal, Stallworth stopped in the middle of Gravois, pointed a pistol out the window and opened fire before driving off.

Police found two bullet shells from where Stallworth fired the shots, charges said. A police license plate reader also identified Stallworth’s vehicle in the 3200 block of Gravois at the time of the shooting.
