Sullentrup has been hospitalized at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis County. Several well-wishers offered support Tuesday morning as Sullentrup was driven to an airport for the flight. He’ll be treated at Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado.
Officers went to the convenience store to arrest Kenneth Lee Simpson of St. Louis County on multiple outstanding warrants. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the officers were shot in an altercation inside the store.
Simpson was captured the next day inside a nearby house, after a police tactical team fired tear gas into the home.
