Former East St. Louis officer Orlando Ward was sentenced this morning in federal court.
St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson sent nearly three dozen officers into the troubled Wells-Goodfellow neighborhood this morning.
Police say a man shot and killed 2 people in an Arkansas residence, 1 person in a business before being found dead of a gunshot wound in a vehicle.
It happened around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday when a 21-year-old man entered the McDonald’s at Natural Bridge and Kingshighway, armed with a gun.
The St. Louis Police Union called the Chief to complain, and the Chief issued an apology to his officers.
St. Louis Police are beginning to check social media such as Twitter and Facebook in efforts to prevent Mob Fights.
Dotson said the overall crime rate is down, but also referred to some of his officers as “slugs.”
If you’re going to the Blues or Cardinals games tonight, there’s a chance the person sitting next to you may be carrying a handgun.
Police were called to a home Wednesday night, where witnesses said a 52-year-old man was threatening people and setting off fireworks.
The officer is said to be okay, but there’s no word on the condition of the suspect involved.
