    Another St. Louis carjacking: this time an elderly lady at the library

    Library carjacking leads to police shooting

    Just two days after St. Louis police officers shot a man who made a threatening move as they approached him, another officer shot a man who pointed a gun at him, police said.

    On Wednesday, an off-duty officer was working a department-approved security job at the Walnut Park Library in the 5700 block of West Florissant Road when a person ran inside at 6:30 p.m. to say that an elderly woman had been carjacked in the parking lot, police said. The officer ran outside and saw a man in the woman's car. That man pointed a gun at the officer, who fired and struck the carjacker in the thigh, police said.

    The carjacker drove off and crashed into another car a short distance away. Those inside the second car suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, as was the carjacker, police said. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

    The officer has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard in police shootings.

    On Monday evening, officers shot a man who matched the description of the person who shot and killed a Madison man on Cole Street near the Edward Jones Dome.

    Police ordered the man, who was a few blocks north of the shooting, to show his hands, but he made a quick move and took one hand from his pocket and put it in his coat. Police said two officers feared for their safety and shot the 45-year-old man in the knee and grazed his side.

    His injuries were not considered life-threatening. It was unclear late Wednesday whether that man was involved in the fatal shooting near the Dome.

    The two officers involved in the shooting were put on administrative leave.
    The mayor of St. Louis still doesnít think itís a good idea for law-abiding citizens to be armed. Apparently criminals and idiots outnumber citizens with common sense because the mayor keeps getting re-elected.

    Some of these perps have no conscience at all. Stealing from a little old lady at the library? These punks need to be put away.

    Yet some still scoff at me because of the precautions I take against crime, which include carrying every time we drive anywhere, plus always at home.

    My castle is being hardened as I type, and my security system upgrade is only days away.

    If the thugs keep this up, they'll have the entire SLPD on administrative leave.

    I feel a little bad for laughing, but there's some truth to your statement!
