Looters break into south St. Louis shoe store overnight

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Looters broke into a south St. Louis shoe store overnight.  Police say shortly before 12:00 a.m. Tuesday, the Shoe Carnival located on Bamberger Avenue near Grand at Gravois was damaged. Ten to 15 cars with nearly 30 people pulled up, broke into the store and stole multiple pairs of shoes.

The suspects also attempted to rob  a nearby Radio Shack but were scared off by a security guard. The front window at that store is partially broken.

Investigators think this is related to the events in Ferguson.

No arrests have been made.
