Breaking news out of East St. Louis, where an Illinois State Police trooper was shot in early Friday.

Shortly after, police surrounded a home near 42nd Street and Caseyville Avenue.

We’re told that police arrested at least one person about 6 a.m. and then searched a second area nearby around 43rd Street and Vanburen Avenue. More

This is so sad! I pray that the officer pulls through.

MDJ reports Dorothy Burns said: “All I can say is they need to cut this violence out because it’s on my block. Police need to get some stun guns because too many people are getting shot. Too many guns around.”

A cop got shot Ms. Burns and the police are already outgunned by most of the criminals they encounter.
