Sunday Night Shooting Spree Begets Monday Night Shooting Spree in a "Dangerous City"

Posted By on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 7:01 AM

When I retraced a wild night in St. Louis that left four people shot in the span of five hours this past Sunday, I didn't think I'd follow with a similar story the very same week.

Guess I forgot that we're living in one of America's Most Dangerous Cities. Monday night in St. Louis was just as violent. Three separate shootings over the course of just two hours Monday night left one person dead and two injured.

Click the markers on the map below for more information about Monday's gun play and continue reading to check out images of the crime scenes via Google's Street View.
