A St. Louis police officer was shot in the face and critically wounded on Sunday in an ambush while sitting in his patrol car, city police said.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said the officer was shot when a car pulled up next to his cruiser and someone opened fire before speeding away. The wounded officer was conscious and able to speak after the attack, Dotson said.

The attack in Missouri occurred hours after similar ambush in San Antonio, Texas, where a police detective was fatally shot as he sat in his patrol car writing a ticket for a traffic violation.
