ST. LOUIS, Mo. — The New York Yankees have sent their condolences to the North County Police Cooperative. Officer Michael Langsdorf was shot to death Sunday while answering a call about a bad check at a market in the St. Louis County town of Wellston. Langsdorf was a 40-year-old father of two.

The memorial is at the North County Police Cooperative station at Page and Midland. Flags are flying at half-staff there. Black bunting also adorns the building.
The funeral for a Missouri police officer killed in the line of duty will be Monday in St. Louis.
Prosecutors charged 26-year-old Bonette Kymbrelle Meeks with first-degree murder and three other crimes. Meeks is jailed without bond.
