EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — Ambulance workers have found an 18-year-old man shot dead in East St. Louis, Illinois.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports Roman Brooks was found in snow and a pool of blood early Friday. East. St. Louis Assistant Police Chief Ronald Ike says the teen was found in front of a house.

Ike says police received a call before 5 a.m. from ambulance workers reporting that they found the teen.

Police say they have no suspects but are investigating with help from Illinois State Police.

It's the 20th homicide in East St. Louis this year.

Police: St. Louis knockout game report was false

Saturday, 07 December 2013 09:55 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police say a reported "knockout game" attack in the city has proven to be false.

The Post-Dispatch reports that investigators plan to seek criminal charges of falsifying a police report against the woman who made the report and her boyfriend.

The woman's claim that she was attacked randomly outside a St. Louis bar last month drew national attention. Police now believe she was injured by the boyfriend and they made up the story to cover for her injuries.

The so-called "knockout game" involves random attacks on innocent people. Some cases have been reported in St. Louis, including a fatal attack of a Vietnamese immigrant in 2011.

Boeing lawmakers take different approaches in Missouri

Saturday, 07 December 2013 09:51 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two Boeing employees who are Missouri lawmakers took different approaches when the House considered a package of incentives for their company to assemble a new passenger jet in the St. Louis area.

Rep. Doug Funderburk, who is a longtime Boeing electrician, passionately urged colleagues to approve the legislation Friday. He voted "yes" as the bill passed the House 127-20.

Funderburk told The Associated Press he didn't think it posed a conflict of interest because he plans to retire within a few years. He said Boeing officials had no conversations with him about the legislation.

Representative Clem Smith, who is a machinist on the Boeing F-18, abstained from voting. Smith told The AP the bill presented a conflict of interest, because it could mean more money in his pocket.
