ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – St. Louis city firefighters are investigating a suspected arson fire that occurred Saturday morning.
What’s causing some extra attention is graffiti that was found at the scene.
Firefighters responded to a trash fire in the 4800 block of Sigel around 10:45 a.m.
Written on the wall nearby was the message “Y’all gon stop killin us” (sic).
That’s leading to speculation that the fire may have been deliberately set, and tied to recent protests in the wake of the Jason Stockley verdict.
An electronic message sent to nearby residents asks them to “Keep your eyes peeled,” and to report any information they might have on the fire.
That information can be anonymously called in to city police at (314) 231-1212 or CrimeStoppers at (866) 371-TIPS, that’s (866) 371-8477.
No injuries were reported.
