Thursday, 15 August 2013 09:15 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are searching for a gunman who killed a man and wounded two others at a home where three young children were inside.

 

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/14OdamT ) reports that the attack happened late Wednesday night. Police are searching for a 25-year-old suspect. A motive hasn't been released but police say the gunman was related to at least one of the adults in the home.

 

   Police say the man forced his way into the home and shot a 27-year-old man in the head and chest, shot a 25-year-old man in the cheek, and pistol-whipped a 23-year-old woman.

 

   Children ages 3, 5 and 7 were in the home; it wasn't clear if they saw the attack.

 

   The second shooting victim was in critical but stable condition.

St. Louis Health Director testifies at Medicaid hearing

Wednesday, 14 August 2013 10:33 Published in Local News

   The City's health department director testified at a Medicaid hearing at St. Louis Community College on Wednesday.

   Pam Walker says 57,000 people in the St. Louis are are uninsured, and about 90% of those would qualify for Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. The City's health director says 26 other states have already expanded their Medicaid, and if the state of Missouri fails to do so, it would be a major safety net issue in St. Louis City.

   Currently, only pregnant women, children, and the disabled are covered by Medicaid. Walker wants to see it expanded to cover 133% of poverty, which is about $26,000 for a family of four.
