POTOSI, Mo. (AP) - A 1-year-old girl is dead after a weekend driveway accident in St. Francois County.
KMOV-TV reports that the Potosi child was run over outside a home near Desloge on Sunday evening.
Police say the toddler got out of a parked car, which then rolled backward and hit her. She was flown to St. Louis Children's Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
One of the largest employers in the St. Louis area might be forced to furlough its workers if the government shutdown.
Boeing spokesman Dan Beck tells the St. Louis Business Journal that the company's workforce reductions could be caused by customer-issued, stop-work orders, funding cuts, or a shortage of government inspectors. Boeing's workers at its Hazelwood-based Defense, Space & Security unit would be the ones affected by the furloughs.
The unit has over 15,000 full-time employees in St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are looking for suspects in the deaths of two people at a bar.
Police say the two victims were at Starz Bar separately when shootings began early Sunday.
The victims were identified as 45-year-old Timothy Blair of north St. Louis County and 32-year-old Kemesa Newble of East St. Louis.
Police say a fight began inside the bar and all of the patrons were asked to leave.
Blair was standing with a group of men when he was shot in the abdomen by an unknown male. Newble was inside her car when she was caught in a crossfire between two men. Both died later at St. Louis hospitals.
The suspects fled on foot.
