Missed this before.
After a particularly bloody night on Monday -- with eighteen people injured during seven separate incidents of crime in St. Louis -- the metro police department vowed to increase patrols the following night throughout the city in an effort to curb the violence.
As we reported yesterday, a 52-year-old officer, who we now know was on special patrol Tuesday night, faced a violent ambush from a shooter who he says looked him straight in the eye -- and began firing bullets.
Police officials announced late last night that they had charged two men in connection with this shooting, after another crime-filled day in the city that put many cops in danger.
