A tearful plea today from the grandmother of a two-year-old boy who was killed by a hit and run driver Sunday night in Spanish Lake. "Whoever you are, please have a conscience.  (sobs) And just come forward. My grandson did not deserve this."

St Louis County police say two-year-old Darion Griffin ran out into the street around  8 p.m. in the 1500 block of Redmond Road.  Witnesses told police that a white SUV with tinted windows was speeding eastbound on Redmond near Bellefontaine Road when it hit  the toddler and his 17-year-old aunt, Sheria Evans.   Police say Evans was trying to pull the child from the path of the vehicle. The SUV didn't stop.  

Both victims were rushed to a nearby hospital where the boy was pronounced dead. The teen suffered minor injuries.  

Anyone with information is urged to call St. Louis County Police.

   St. Louis County Police say a bomb scare that forced the evacuation of about 30 Spanish Lake residents Tuesday afternoon was a false alarm.  

   It began about 4:30 p.m. at a home in the 1400 block of Twillman Avenue. 

   Investigators say family members had been going through the belongings of an elderly man who'd recently died when they came upon a box marked 1954.  The relatives had already found blasting caps nearby and they initially thought the pipes and other materials in the box were old explosives. So they called police.  

   The County's Bomb and Arson Squad was called in and an area of about 300 yards around the home was evacuated.  

   The elderly gentleman had been a pilot and it turned out the box contained old aircraft parts and not  explosives.
