This triple shooting comes after a violent weekend in the City of St. Louis. At least seven people were shot and killed and another 23 were injured from Friday to Sunday.

As of July 27, the homicide count in the City of St. Louis is at 148.

Governor Mike Parson’s special session on violent crime in the state began on Monday.

“Violent crime has been a problem in our state long before COVID-19. And we have seen it escalate even more in recent weeks, especially in our big cities. The number of homicides we're seeing is devastating and unacceptable,” Gov. Parson said. “Innocent lives are being lost. Futures cut short and families are hurting. We cannot continue to let violent crime destroy our cities, communities and families. Doing nothing is not an option. We need to do everything we can as soon as we can to get violent criminals off our streets.”
