St. Louis, Mo., Oct 25, 2022 / 15:38 pm
After a gunman at a magnet high school in St. Louis killed two people in an Oct. 24 rampage, the local bishop and several nearby parishes are urging prayers for the victims and an end to gun violence in the community.
Authorities said a 19-year-old former student at Central Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) High School entered the school with an AR-15-style rifle and more than 600 rounds of ammunition on Monday morning, killing a 15-year-old student and a 61-year-old teacher and injuring at least seven other people. The suspect was subsequently killed in a shootout with police.
Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski of St. Louis urged prayers for the victims and an end to gun violence in the city.
