   St. Louis police say three people taken into custody yesterday aren't connected to the murder of a teen who was gunned down near a school bus stop Tuesday morning.  

   Police say 16 year old James Moore had been waiting for the school bus at Goodfellow and St. Louis Avenue when a masked man got out of a car, chased him into a nearby park and shot him several times.  Moore died at the scene.  

   Later in the day, police stopped a car matching the description of the one used in the murder.  The three suspects from that car who were initially questioned in the murder didn't get off scot-free.  They're facing charges for fleeing from police.  

   The investigation into Moore's death is ongoing.  Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.

Trial underway for man shot by Missouri trooper

UNION, Mo. (AP) - The trial is under way for an eastern Missouri publisher of an anti-government newsletter facing multiple charges for a 2012 confrontation with state troopers.

The Washington Missourian reports that 47-year-old Jeffrey Weinhaus of Franklin County is charged with interfering with a judicial official, felony possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and assault of law enforcement officers.

Weinhaus was critically injured in a confrontation near St. Clair in September 2011 when he was shot by a state trooper after allegedly reaching for a handgun.

Jurors on Tuesday saw a video of Weinhaus saying he had a right to "go in there and blast" officials he felt were corrupt.

4 charged in Chicago shooting held without bail

CHICAGO (AP) - A judge denied bail for four men charged in connection with a shooting at a Chicago park that injured a 3-year-old boy and 12 others.

All four appeared before a Cook County judge Tuesday wearing street clothes.

Authorities say last Thursday's attack on the city's southwest side was gang related and in retaliation for another shooting that occurred earlier in the day, injuring one of the defendants.

Tabari Young, Bryon Champ, Brad Jett and Kewane Gatewood are all charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery. Prosecutors say the four are members of the Blackstone street gang. The park where they opened fire was inside territory frequented by members of the Gangster Disciples.

Investigators say Young and Champ were alleged gunmen.

Police say they don't believe they were targeting specific people
