ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Band members loading up after a riverboat performance in St. Louis, Friday night, claim gunshots were fired in their vicinity.

Performers Charles Glenn and Donna Perrino told a KMOX reporter the incident was so frightening that they may never perform on the St. Louis riverfront again.
our earlier story:
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A prominent local performer and his band were forced to duck for cover Friday night when shots were fired on the St. Louis riverfront. The Charles Glenn Ensemble was packing up around 10 p.m. after a gig at the Queen of the Mississippi riverboat when someone opened fire.
Pianist Donna Perrino says one of the attendants said he had a bullet whiz past his head. He had to double-check to make sure he hadn’t been hit.
Nobody was hurt, but Perrino and Charles Glenn say they’re both saddened, because now they don’t want to perform on the riverfront again.
