Police probe suspected arson attack on mid west town
An explosive device was tossed into a car Monday in the바카라 west side’s Grand Boulevard neighborhood, injuring one man who was knocked to the ground, authorities said.
It took firefighters about a half-hour to subdue the suspected arson attack, but the damage to the car caused panic and sparked more violent and dangerous street disturbances in the area, including several attacks Wednesday night on vehicles parked in the area of W. Grand Boulevard and W. West Boulevard.
The injuries sustained by one man are not believed to be life-threatening, according to an emergency dispatcher.
A 22-더킹카지노year-old man was in critical condition at Presence Saint Michael’s Hospital with injuries to his face and lower arm, but doctors were unable to determine a cause of death, Sgt. Ryan Miller said.
The incident, which happened around 5:45 p.m. after a block party, took place in a parking lot directly behind the property manager’s offices on Grand Boulevard.
Police said the two male victims were walking home from the party when a male suspect drove up and threw a tire iron. At least one person in the vehicle was knocked to the ground, investigators said.
Two of the men were taken to Presence Saint Michael’s Medical Center in critical condition with their injuries, and the third was taken to Christ Medical Center with a leg injury and is listed in fair condition, Miller said.
No other injuries were repo바카라rted.
One man was also treated and released from Christ Medical Center for shock and swelling following the car explosion, while the other sustained smoke inhalation and was treated at a local hospital for smoke inhalation, Miller said.
Officers arrested the second suspect, who faces a criminal mischief charge.
No arrests have been made in connection with the attack and none of the vehicles are linked to the party, Miller said.
Officers will work with detectives from the St. Louis County Police Department to try and determine what led to the fire. If the investigation turns up any potential criminal connections, they will be forwarded to the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s Office.
No other details were available about the possible bomb or vehicle.
“This was a pretty violent attack, a lot of people got hurt,” witness David Pappalardo said. “I was in the parking lot and I was looking at all the cars, cars all over the street. And I thought, ‘You know what? I gotta go home.'”
