Hanaway mulls run for Governor

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 11:03 Published in Local News

Former Missouri House Speaker Catherine Hanaway is considering a run for governor in 2016. Hanaway told the Post-Dispatch that "a lot of people are encouraging her to run" and "she's giving strong consideration to their advice." Missouri's GOP has been in search of a high-profile republican to run against the assumed democratic nominee, Attorney General Chris Koster. The 49-year-old Hanaway was the first woman speaker of the Missouri House. She was U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri from 2005 to 2009, and is currently with the Husch Blackwell law firm.

Forest Park police shooting under investigation

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 08:12 Published in Local News

An off-duty St. Charles County Sheriff's Deputy was involved in a deadly shooting in Forest Park last night.

St. Louis Police say the deputy was jogging with a female friend around 11 PM Monday, when they were approached by three suspects. Those suspects pulled a gun and tried to rob the pair. That is when the deputy pulled his own gun and shot the suspects, killing one. The dead man has been identified as 18-year-old Antonio Nash of North St. Louis.

Lt. Dave Tiefenbrunn with St. Charles County Sheriff's department explains why the shooting is believed to be justified. "All the points at this time of the investigation indicates that it was a justified shooting," Tiefenbrunn said. "The suspect was armed. There was a handgun recovered at the scene. I believe they have also interviewed a couple of the other suspects and the intent was to rob the individual, unbeknownst to them that it was an off-duty officer."

The deputy has not been identified, but he does have 16 years of experience in law enforcement.
