For those who don’t live in the St. Louis area, you may or may not have heard of the tragedy of this St. Louis Firefighter who was shot and killed by a carjacker on Wednesday the day after the election. Leonard Riggins was in his fire department vehicle as he approached an accident. Though off duty he stopped anyway. Unfortunately the accident was caused by a car jacker who then shot Riggins in the chest.
Later that suspect was shot and killed by police. (I ain’t mad about it either… though it doesn’t bring Riggins back…. not saying thats right, just being real about it.)
Many thoughts and prayers to Rigginn’s family as well as his brothers and sisters with the Fire Department.
Also a week ago University City Police Officer Sgt. Michael King 50, was also shot and killed while sitting in his partrol car. A suspect has been arrested and we hope they get the right person so justice can be served. King was buried on Tuesday, November 4.
These senseless killings need to stop!
