Last night a gunman opened fire at a Kirkwood City Council meeting. Two police officers, three civilians in attendance and the gunman were killed. Another victim is recovering from a gunshot wound to the hand and the Mayor of Kirkwood is in critical condition at St. John's Mercy.
Kirkwood City Hall is now a crime scene.
In the coming days many will question security measures, whether the gunman should have been prevented from attending council meetings and whether Kirkwood will ever be the same.
But today I’m praying for the victims and the community of Kirkwood.
