Forest Park police shooting under investigation

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 08:12 Published in Local News

An off-duty St. Charles County Sheriff's Deputy was involved in a deadly shooting in Forest Park last night.

St. Louis Police say the deputy was jogging with a female friend around 11 PM Monday, when they were approached by three suspects. Those suspects pulled a gun and tried to rob the pair. That is when the deputy pulled his own gun and shot the suspects, killing one. The dead man has been identified as 18-year-old Antonio Nash of North St. Louis.

Lt. Dave Tiefenbrunn with St. Charles County Sheriff's department explains why the shooting is believed to be justified. "All the points at this time of the investigation indicates that it was a justified shooting," Tiefenbrunn said. "The suspect was armed. There was a handgun recovered at the scene. I believe they have also interviewed a couple of the other suspects and the intent was to rob the individual, unbeknownst to them that it was an off-duty officer."

The deputy has not been identified, but he does have 16 years of experience in law enforcement.

It may be September, but state officials have already started their  Christmas shopping in Jefferson City -- for a holiday tree, that is.  Missouri officials are looking for the next Christmas tree to decorate the lawn of the Governor's Mansion in state capitol. The deadline to submit entries to the state Department of Conservation is September 30. Trees must be at least 40 feet tall, fully branched and donated. The owner of the winning tree gets a personalized thank you from Governor Jay Nixon and an invitation to the tree lighting.  Submissions must include photos taken from several angles and distances, contact information and the location of tree through an online mapping service. Entries can be sent to the Department of Conservation in Jefferson City.

 

Mizzou J-school to lobby for use of drones

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 07:24 Published in Local News

The University of Missouri's journalism school plans to seek approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to resume the use of news-gathering drones.

 

   The federal agency has ordered the university as well as the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to stop flying the drones outdoors until they obtain government authorization.

   Scott Pham of Missouri's university-owned station KBIA-FM said the school will apply for a federal permit known as a certificate of authorization. His counterpart in Nebraska has said the school also plans to seek the federal permit.

 

   Journalism researchers and their students were using the airborne robots to shoot aerial photos and video from difficult-to-reach news scenes.
