St. Louis did not make a good impression on a pair of brothers driving through the city on a road trip.
The two men say they their car was broken into. Around 3 AM the pair from Michigan decided to park their car and walk to the Arch to get some pictures. As they returned to their car, they saw two men in the car. The suspects ran out of the car and into their own vehicle. As one of the brothers tried to write down their license plate, a suspect fired several shots into the air. One of the bullets hit a window in the nearby Hyatt Hotel. No one was injured.
The brothers say the suspects stole a cell phone charger, wallet, and computer.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Officials say a state employee was fired after an investigation found he had taken sexually explicit photos and a video of himself at work and emailed inappropriate images.
The Illinois Executive Ethics Commission reported Friday that the Illinois Department on Aging fired John Hastings in December. Hastings was responsible for authoring computer code and inputting data for agency programs.
An executive inspector general's investigation found 225 pornographic images on his state computer. There were 13 explicit images and a video of a man identified as Hastings.
The heavily redacted report indicates Hastings took at least some of the photos at work and sent an inappropriate image to a female co-worker.
The report says Hastings acknowledged the wrongdoing. A phone number could not be located for him
