Dear Members of The West Pine-Laclede Neighborhood Association:
Tragically, one of the blocks immediately east of Sarah once again has become the scene of a multiple murder.
Jim Whyte is certain that this horrific crime was not a case of random violence.
4050 West Pine is the street address of The West Pine Lofts.
Early this morning, at approximately 2 am, police officers received a call for “shots fired” in the alley at 4050 West Pine.
Upon arrival police saw a subject lying in the alley and two other subjects inside a vehicle. All appeared to have gunshot wounds. Two of the subjects were pronounced dead at the scene and the third was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
The Homicide Unit is conducting the investigation.
