ST. LOUIS – A U.S. representative’s car was struck by gunfire last weekend in St. Louis.
It was confirmed that Rep. Cori Bush’s vehicle was hit with bullets early last Saturday morning, according to spokesperson Jack Besser. He said she was not in the vehicle at the time and was not injured.
He added that there is no evidence that she was targeted and a report to the police was made.
In a statement to Fox 2 News, Bush said, “Like far too many of us in St. Louis, experiencing gun violence is all too familiar. Thankfully no one was harmed. But any act of gun violence shakes your soul.”
“No one should have to fear for their safety here in St. Louis and that is exactly why our movement is working every day to invest in our communities, eradicate the root causes of gun violence, and keep every neighborhood safe.”
