Home burglarized while family flees from crime

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A St. Louis family was simply trying to avoid crime. Instead, their actions made them crime victims.

Venus Houston was recently featured in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch story about shootings in the Baden neighborhood. Houston said at the time that the family had been leaving their home at night to avoid random gun violence.

Houston told police Sunday that somebody broke into their home while they were gone and stole a television.

Three people are charged in a fatal shooting on July 20. No arrests have been made in the second shooting that same day, when a 35-year-old man was shot in the back.

Police say there have been 77 burglaries in the Baden neighborhood this year, six more than in the same period in 2013.
