ST. LOUIS — In the City of St. Louis, 14 children have been killed in 2019. In one of those cases, two people were charged. The rest remain unsolved.

‘CUT SHORT: Unsolved Killings of St. Louis Children’ is an initiative of KSDK 5 On Your Side and its community outreach program, ‘Project 5,’ to raise awareness of the unchecked violence against children in the city of St. Louis from the summer of 2019 to present.

We’re dedicated to telling their stories, following the criminal investigations and shining a light on the reasons for gun violence in our city. We won’t let up.

Please join us in this important campaign seeking justice for our youth by sharing these stories about their young lives cut short, reaching out to elected officials and supporting the worthy organizations in St. Louis working to make our city’s neighborhoods safer places to raise families.  

As part of 'Cut Short: Unsolved Killings of St. Louis Children' we want to share ways you can help. We've provided contact information for city leaders below.
