Eleven-Year-Old Boy Shot At St. Louis Home

As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we’ve seen too many tragic events happen to good people in good families. The story of the eleven-year-old boy who was shot and killed in his family’s home is no different.

The boy’s teacher refers to him as a “model student” who demonstrated excellence in almost every area of his studies. In fact, he was working on his spelling homework when the gunman fired eight to ten shots through a first floor window of his St. Louis home. There were others present in the residence, but the boy was the only person who was hit by the shots, according to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website.

Authorities believe the shots were intended for someone else in the home. One of the teenagers who was present had been shot prior to this incident.

Unfortunately, violent crimes are still a problem in St. Louis. Perhaps you have been the victim of a crime, or someone you love has been a victim in the past. Your injuries should not go unpaid for. As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we are determined to fight for your rights to be compensated.

Too many St. Louis citizens sit quietly, and look the other way when they are victims of a crime. Don’t allow that to happen to you. Contact one of our personal injury attorneys so that justice can be served.
