   Wind may be to blame for a partial building collapse in south St. Louis Thursday morning.  

   Officials with the St. Louis Fire Department say no one was inside the two-story brick warehouse at Ohio and Victor when part of a wall fell.  Bricks rained into the street, but no one was injured.  

   The building has been vacant for some time, and neighbors had complained to the city the building began leaning toward the street following recent high winds.  

   Fox 2 News reports that the city's collapse task force has taken over the scene and will supervise the demolition of the structure.

   St. Louis Police believe the south city home where a seven-year-old child was shot and killed Wednesday night was intentionally targeted.  It happened about 9 p.m. at a home in the 3600 block of Tholozan.  

   Police Chief Sam Dotson says the shooter climbed onto a window sill and fired eight-to-ten shots into the single-story home, striking the child in the head as he sat at a computer.  

   Three adults, two teenagers and a four-year-old were also inside the home, but none of them was hurt.  

   Police are questioning one of the teenagers who'd been the victim of an earlier shooting, but stress that they have no suspects yet.

   It looks like Local Harvest Grocery and its two cafe restaurants will stay in business, at least for now.  
   The owners tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that they met their goal Saturday evening, raising the $120,000 they needed to pay off debts that had threatened to shutter the business.  Patrick Horine tells the paper that he and partner Maddie Earnest are "stunned," by their customer's support.  
   Last Monday the pair had appealed to customers on Facebook and Twitter, offering customers punch cards and gift certificates that would be redeemable over the next two years in order to cover debts left over by their failed venture in Kirkwood.  They needed the cash by February 7th.  Horine says they had it by 8 p.m. Saturday.
   Local Harvest focuses on working with farmers and vendors within 150-miles of St. Louis to sell and serve mostly organic, locally produced goods.
   After reaching their goal, the owners posted this to Facebook: "We, the owners and the Local Harvest staff, feel a deep responsibility to our community – even deeper than before – after this outpouring of support. We all understand how important our success is and we are going to come through for you, just like you have for us."

STL Police shoot suspect in south city

   A suspect is in police custody in a local hospital after being shot by a police officer in south St. Louis Sunday afternoon.

   The suspect fled.  Officers chased him. Police tried to stop him with a tazor, but that effort failed. 

   St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack says when the suspect reached for his waist, the officer thought he was reaching for a gun and fire at him.  The suspect was hit twice in the legs.  

   The officer is on routine administrative leave.

   Residents and business owners in the largest Bosnian community in America are frustrated by the crime in their Bevo Mill neighborhood.  

   Two convenience store murders in less than a month prompted residents to pack the Bosnian Chamber of Commerce office Wednesday night, looking for answers from City Police Chief Sam Dotson.

   A nineteen year old clerk at the Quick Stop store on Chippewa was gunned down May 31st.  His brother was also shot and wounded.  Then last week a 30 year old father with a pregnant wife was shot to death while working at a 7-11 at Gravois and Bates.

   The publisher of the local Bosnian newspaper, Sabah says St. Louis is developing a reputation for crime and that's off-putting to future Bosnian immigrants.  "This is a great town for new comers.  A great town for new businesses.  A great town for residential areas, but recently, suddenly, what's going on around is not good for such positive stories."

   Chief Dotson told the group that crime is actually down seven-percent in the area, but that he understands their concerns and urged them to put pressure on judges to sentence repeat offenders to prison instead of probation.

   An off-duty St. Louis firefighter is being called a hero after rescuing a man who had driven his truck into the River Des Peres Sunday.  

   Firefighter Chris Dimza was driving in the area just west of I-55 when he saw a crowd of people was pointing toward the river.  He stopped to see why.

   Upon learning that a truck had gone into the rain-swollen river, Dimza, who's part of a water rescue unit stationed in north St. Louis, dove into the water and swam toward bubbles.  A man surfaced briefly and the firefighter was able to bring him safely to shore.  

   Fire Department divers later pulled the man's truck from the water.  

   The driver was taken to a hospital.   He has not been identified and his condition is unknown.  No one else was injured in the incident.
