Two men wanted for shooting a 12 year old girl Sunday are now in police custody.
Police say the two men had been arguing at Loretta Hall Park near 15th and Cole when they fired several shots. Police believe it was a stray bullet that hit the girl in the hand. The men fled the scene.
St. Louis Police spokesperson Schron Jackson says the suspects were arrested Tuesday at an apartment in the 1000 block of Suntree Drive in St. Louis County.
The suspects are being withheld until charges are filed.
The Wentzville Fire Protection District board won't say what's behind it, but four senior officers are no longer with the department. Three of them, including Fire Chief Randy Bornhop, had been placed on leave three months ago.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Bornhop has now resigned. Assistant Chief Robb Watkins has been fired. Fire Marshal Joseph Heitkamp is on indefinite unpaid leave. And a fourth official, Fire Inspector Chris Newbold has also been laid off.
The leadership of the fire district has been in limbo since May when Bornhop, Watkins and Heitkamp were first placed on paid administrative leave.
St. Louis residents are speaking out about a proposed city-wide ban on sagging pants. More than 50 people showed up to Long Middle School Tuesday night to talk about Aldermanic Bill 117. It was the second such forum hosted by the bill's sponsor, Alderwoman Marlene Davis.
Davis had originally proposed fines of $100-500, but after hearing from citizens, she's now looking at alternatives.
"There needs to be some consequences, maybe community service, something like that," Davis said. "And we have a system in place that maybe we could use, called the Neighborhood Accountability Board."
Davis says about 70 percent of the people attending two public forums seem to approve of the ban. She'll now present their comments to the city's public safety department.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 41-year-old Marc Messmer of St. Charles and 57-year-old Duane Weed of Bridgeton were arrested Saturday afternoon on a St. Charles overpass. It was part of a series of overpass demonstrations around the country calling for impeachment of the president.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The State Board of Education is increasing its oversight of Missouri's unaccredited schools and hiring a consultant to help develop an improvement plan.
The board's action comes in advance of an Aug. 28 effective date for a new law allowing the state to more quickly intervene in unaccredited schools. Three districts currently lack accreditation - Kansas City and the suburban St. Louis systems of Normandy and Riverview Gardens.
State Education Commissioner Chris Nicastro says state personnel will increase classroom visits and interaction with local education officials.
The board also approved a contract with The Cities for Education Entrepreneurship Trust to analyze the reasons for failure in the Kansas City School District and make recommendations to improve it. The suggestions also could be used for other schools.
