Defendant Admits To Shooting But Pleads Not Guilty

Wednesday, 09 April 2014 10:45 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man accused of shooting the financial aid director of a downtown St. Louis business college has told a jury that he did it, ignoring the advice of his attorney.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Sean Johnson testified at his trial Tuesday. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree assault, armed criminal action and possession of a defaced firearm.
 
The shooting happened Jan. 15, 2013, prompting a lockdown at Stevens Institute of Business & Arts.
 
Johnson told the jury that he didn't intend to kill anyone. He says he was upset because his student loans were running out a few credits short of graduating.
 
Financial aid director Greg Elsenrath survived the attack.
 
 
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Move over, baseball. Busch Stadium will host an event next month featuring America's real national pastime - eating.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a qualifying event for the Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest at New York's Coney Island will take place May 17 at Busch Stadium, prior to a Cardinals game.
 
The hot dog-eating contest starts at noon, with the Cardinals hosting the Atlanta Braves at 1:15 p.m. The top male and female contenders will advance to the New York contest.

Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:45 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Fair St. Louis moves to Forest Park this year, but organizers still expect big crowds for entertainment, fireworks and food.
 
Organizers of one of the nation's largest Fourth of July celebrations announced the entertainment lineup Tuesday. Fair St. Louis is temporarily moving away from the grounds of the Gateway Arch because of construction there as part of a major renovation of the grounds and the area around the Arch.
 
Musical performers will include Bonnie Raitt, The Band Perry, The Fray, Musiq Soulchild, Gavin Degraw, Matt Nathanson, Mary Lambert, Capitol Cities and The Neighborhood.
 
The fair is July 3-5.
