More gun violence claiming lives in the city of St. Louis this week -- with the eighteenth homicide of the year uncovered late last night on a MetroLink platform. The death of Charles Campbell, 33, comes one day after a 46-year-old man died at a gas station after he was shot in the abdomen and only a few days after the Mardi Gras festivities turned violent, prompting police officers to shoot and kill Otis Roberson, 32.
