    MO - Girl, 13, surrenders in double shooting


    Girl, 13, surrenders in double shooting at Bellefontaine Neighbors beauty supply store
    BELLEFONTAINE NEIGHBORS • A 13-year-old girl suspected of shooting and critically wounding a couple in their 70s during a robbery at a beauty supply store surrendered to police on Wednesday, police say.

    Bellefontaine Neighbors Police Chief Jeremy Ihler said the girl arrived at the St. Louis County Police Department’s North County precinct late Wednesday morning. Ihler said he was told that the girl’s family accompanied her to the station.

    The shooting victims, a man and a woman, reside in O’Fallon, Mo. They were listed in critical condition at a hospital in St. Louis. Each had been shot once in the torso, said Detective Lt. Shawn Applegate. Their names were not released.
    The couple were shot after 4 p.m. Tuesday inside the store, at 10073 Lewis and Clark Boulevard in Bellefontaine Neighbors. But police believe the girl, who witnesses saw run from the store carrying a pistol, had been at the store twice earlier that day.
    In the first visit, the girl and another juvenile went to the business and stole some items, believed to be hair extensions, police said. The couple got the items back and kicked the girls out, warning them to stay away. They did not report the shoplifting to police.
    A witness saw her enter the store, “then less than a minute later came running out, swinging in her right hand a revolver as she ran,” Appelgate said. She was last seen in the area carrying the pistol and items believed taken from the store.

    It really angers me because this elderly couple didn't press charges on the thief and they were let go with a warning. The thanks they get for that? Getting shot and are now fighting for their lives.

    You know the old saying, "no good deed goes unpunished".

    What makes me sick is this girl is only 13. Why in 'ell would she do that, and where did she get the gun?
