   It's one of the biggest parades of the year in St. Louis.   The 125th annual Annie Malone May Day Parade will march through downtown Sunday afternoon.

   In light of recent violence at a New Orleans parade and the Boston Marathon bombing, St. Louis police are adjusting their security plan.  Police Chief Sam Dotson says the plan includes both plain clothed and uniformed officers and communications with FBI and state law enforcement officers.

   "It includes an intelligence component," Dotson said.  "Are there any threats against the parade? And the first answer to that is no, there aren't."

   Dotson says parade goers can play a role in keeping the event safe by leaving their guns at home, and paying attention to their surroundings.   Dotson says police will be very visible along the parade route Sunday and if parade-goers see someone acting strangely, like wearing a long coat or a trench coat that's inappropriate for the weather, they should point that individual out to an officer.

   Parade organizers say they've also contracted private security for the event.

 

   A Powerball player in the St. Louis area will soon have a fatter wallet.  That's because a $1 million winning ticket was sold at a South County liquor store.  

   While no one won matched all six numbers to win Wednesday's $360 million  jackpot, Missouri Lottery officials say a ticket matching all five white balls was sold at Telegraph Liquors in the 5600 block of Telegraph Road.   That ticket is worth $1 million.  

   A $10,000 ticket was also sold at a QuikTrip in Ellisville.  

   Since there was no big winner Wednesday,  the jackpot for Saturday's drawing has increased to an estimated $550 million.

Road rage leads to hammer-wielding man's death

Friday, 17 May 2013 02:38 Published in Local News

   St. Louis police say a bizarre case of road rage left a 43 year old man dead.  

   It began around noon yesterday, when a box truck apparently cut off a Lincoln Navigator on westbound Inerstate 70.  

   Police say the SUV followed the truck to the Union Blvd. exit, ramming the box truck several times.  At the light at Margaretta and Union, the driver of the SUV got out of his vehicle and began hitting the truck with a hammer, striking the driver before jumping onto the truck's hood.  When the truck turned onto Margaretta, the attacking man fell off and was injured.  

   The man was taken to a hospital, where he later died.  Police have not yet released his identity.
