A man was shot and killed at a barbecue on Saturday. Another man was shot and killed early Sunday morning walking between bars. And about an hour later, 3 people were shot at a market.
All the violence follows the “Stop the Violence” rally in East St. Louis on Friday featuring the parents of Trayvon Martin.
East St. Louis Police said they were not able to gather much information concerning Dotson’s murder. The police and Mayor Parks are asking for the public’s help.
“Support them. Give them the information they need," Parks said. "Forget about this thing of 'no snitching,' that's crazy. I guess the time when it really matters to someone is when they lose a loved one.”
My Comments: Yet another string of random firearms violence caused by Law Abiding people who actually go through background checks and training to get licenses, NOT! Really, I'm just joking there........
