ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The murder rate in St. Louis City is up 60 percent. Police chief Sam Dotson says lenient judges and prosecutors play a part in these high numbers, and calls for a special gun court to reduce the statistic.
Meanwhile, a St. Louis man is using his business to take a stand against local violence. Daniel “Boone” Fuller plans to live atop a billboard, starting July 9 in the afternoon, until the city goes one week without a murder.
Fuller joins Fox 2 to share the reasoning behind his “community-unity” mindset and encourages everyone to wear yellow this week, to represent “caution” and violence prevention.
