STL Police shoot suspect in south city

Monday, 22 July 2013 00:47 Published in Local News

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

   Police say officers tried to question the suspect and another man near Gravois and Austria.  Both were known to officers as previous offenders.  

   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.

Bridgeton Landfill had history of violations

Monday, 22 July 2013 00:35 Published in Local News

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A long smoldering St. Louis County landfill has a history of methane violations.

   State and county inspection reports and other public documents from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources show the landfill has been out of compliance with state regulations since the late 1990s. The issue was that the landfill was allowing excess levels of methane, a potentially dangerous gas, to seep off-site.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the methane problems also raise questions about a possible connection to the mass of overheated waste that continues to smolder deep below the surface of the landfill.

   The company says it isn't yet ruling anything out and is working with the DNR to determine the origin of what has been called a "smoldering event."

 

   Recent efforts to curb crime are working.  That's according to St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson when he spoke with hundreds of people who gathered at the Demetrious Johnson Center for a town hall meeting Thursday night.  

   Mayor Francis Slay was also there along with several parents of murdered children.  All seemed to agree that keeping the dialog going was critical to fighting violent crime in the city.  

   Chief Dotson says a total of 56 people have been murdered in St. Louis in 2013, 10 fewer than by this time last year. He credits a recent surge of ATF agents in the city with taking more than 200 criminals of the streets.
