There is basically no information on this other than Mayor Swoboda and council members were hit, the gunman was killed by police. (I lied,there is a full article now)
This is fairly local to me and not of much interest to others BUT-an aging shock jock was bitching on the radio about how he was going to take an AK 47 to the Ameren UE building and start picking people off because he's tired of their shoddy service and lost power during the Super Bowl. He was a dumbass and brought race into it, and has since been suspended for at least 2 weeks.
I sincerely hope this looney toon didn't take offense to his suspension and start picking off his own personal pet peeves.

City Council shootings
A correspondent for the Post-Dispatch who was attending said the 7 p.m. meeting had just started when the man rushed into the council chambers yelling and began opening fire with at least one weapon. She identified the man as Charles Lee "Cookie" Thornton.
"He came from the back of the room," said Janet McNichols, the correspondent. "He kept yelling ‘shoot the mayor’ and he just walked around shooting anybody he could."
THIS IS NUTS
