Police say a 15-year-old girl is dead after a shooting in North St. Louis. Police say the girl's 20-year-old brother is in custody.

Chief Sam Dotson tweeted that the suspect was mentally-challenged and says the incident illustrates the importance of gun control.

It is not known why the shooting occurred. 

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man who has gained YouTube fame for spectacular stunts will soar over downtown St. Louis Friday evening in full view of 40,000-plus Cardinals fans, but he promises to stay away from the city's most inviting stunt site - the Gateway Arch.

Plans call for Alexander Polli to jump from a plane flying at 4,000 feet near Busch Stadium, about an hour before the Cardinals host the Atlanta Braves. He'll be wearing a wingsuit - an aerodynamic jumpsuit that allows the wearer to soar for long distances before opening a parachute to land.

Spokeswoman Meghan Spork says Polli will do stunts while flying over downtown for about three minutes. She says he won't fly between the legs of the Arch or land on the Arch grounds.

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is wading into Missouri's political battle over tax cuts.

Perry told The Associated Press on Thursday that he believes Missouri lawmakers should override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of legislation cutting state income taxes.

A Texas economic development group began airing a radio ad Thursday in Missouri criticizing Nixon's veto and encouraging Missouri businesses to consider moving to Texas. The group also is running a Missouri TV ad touting Texas' low taxes and regulations on businesses.

Perry is to visit Missouri on Aug. 29. He plans to meet with business leaders, speak at a Missouri Chamber of Commerce luncheon and attend an evening event hosted by groups backing a veto override of the tax-cut bill.

Missouri lawmakers are to convene Sept. 11 to consider veto overrides.
