Two Killed in Pot Deal Gone Bad Near St. Louis Arch


Two men were killed during an apparent drug-related shooting yesterday in broad daylight near the Arch grounds.
Police say two male occupants of a red Oldsmobile Alero fired shots into a burgundy Dodge Caliber SUV near Gravois Avenue and Russell Boulevard as a result of a drug sale. The confrontation continued as both vehicles drove into downtown, before finally stopping at Fourth and Market streets just blocks away from Busch Stadium where some fans were already gathering for last night’s playoff game.
