Not what we wanted to hear about today…or any day for that matter
Confirmed reports from News 4 in St. Louis say that one person is dead in the Canfield Green apartment complex after a shooting, involving cops and residents of the city, went down earlier today. Shortly after, vague details began surfacing, and one of them was particularly disturbing, whether you’ve been desensitized to every day violence or not.

No one is able to confirm whether or not this was the case, but in her replies, the woman who sent that tweet out elaborated by saying the 17-year-old boy in question was caught shoplifting and while attempting to get away was shot “10 times” by the police. We are still awaiting confirmation of that specific detail, and we will provide updates once they become available.
