Police shoot robbery suspect in South County

Wednesday, 16 April 2014 12:17 Published in Local News
   One armed robbery suspect is custody, another is in the hospital after police shot the suspect.  
   St. Louis County Police confirm that two suspects had tried to rob the "Check 'n Go" in the 600 block of Gravois Bluffs about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.  
   Police were in the area and responded to the call.  Officers confronted the suspects as they left the check cashing store.  
   When officers apprehended the suspects, one pulled a gun and the officer shot him.  
   That suspect was taken to the hospital by ambulance.  His condition isn't known.  
   The other suspect was taken into custody.
   There's no word on any other injuries.
 
   The Missouri Supreme Court has overturned 30 years of precedent with a ruling that gives greater legal protections to injured workers who are fired from their jobs.
   In a 5-2 decision, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that employees no longer have to prove that workers' compensation claims were the exclusive factor for their dismissal in order to win lawsuits claiming retaliation.
   Instead, the court said employees must show only that workers' compensation claims were a contributing factor in their subsequent dismissal from their job.
   State law does not explicitly set forth a standard of proof in such lawsuits, but the exclusive cause standard had been adopted by the state Supreme Court in 1984. Since then, all of the judges on the Supreme Court have changed.
 

   A tiny puppy is safe again after St. Louis firefighters rescued him from a 10 foot deep storm drain.  

   Crews were called to the 4900 block of Theodore in north St. Louis this morning after a teacup chihuahua named "Storm" fell down the drain while playing in the front yuard of a home.  Storm's owner says the two pound puppy was trying to jump over the storm drain vent when it fell in.  

   It took more than an hour for fire crews to pull the puppy out.  

   The dog appears to be okay, but will be checked by a vet.
