Shots fired near Broad and 29th (UPDATED)


Friday 2/19 1:47 PM

From the RPD:

At approximately 11 p.m., officers were called to the 2900 block of East Broad Street for the reports of random gunfire.

Officers arrived and interviewed witnesses who provided suspect descriptions and the direction of travel for suspects who were seen firing a gun into the air and fleeing the area on foot.

Officers located the suspects in the 2400 block of East Main Street attempting to board a GRTC bus.

At no time was there an attempt to commandeer the bus.

Officers arrested Dimitri K. Bacon, 22, of the 200 block of Laburnum Avenue and Travis J. Rose, 22, of the 1600 block of Schloss Road, Chesterfield. Their photos are attached.

They were each charged with possession of a gun by a convicted felon, possession of a stolen firearm and carrying a concealed weapon.

Rose was also charged with discharging a firearm in a public place, possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute and possession of marijuana.

From a reader: “At 29th and broad. Swarms of police.”

Anybody got anything?

Thanks for the update, Mary. Although it may be an expected event in the city, it was still very scary.

I needed a good laugh when I got up this morning!

The get away vehicle was a city bus? Brillant! Nobody would ever notice! We need more criminal idiots like these because they are so much easier to catch. Keep doing what you are doing, it is such a boost to neighborhood moral!!!

The sounds startled me, I’m thankful they didn’t continue into more shooting. There were no sirens on the police cars so it was hard to know whether or not it had really just happened. Sounded semi automatic since the shots came so rapidly together.

Hijacking a bus. Nice getaway plan. How did they get to 29th? Mom drop them off? Oy.

If the truth is anything like the rumor, some face-palming at human choices is in order.

I think I’m going with the story as it has evolved here. Mom dropped them off, they did their bad thugish deeds, then caught the next bus home. The thug life 2016. The truth won’t be nearly as amusing! Glad no one was hurt. It certainly sounded frightening.

If I needed fast, dependable transportation, the last thing in my head would be GRTC.

Is this on the news anywhere? I would think hijacking a bus would be newsworthy, but can find no report on it.

So why were they firing into the air at 29th? maybe the crack cocaine possession explains that?

I would love to know why folks from outside our area feel the need to come to our neighborhood to pop off. So glad this trash is off the street.

They had a girl in cuffs too, but I can only assume they let her go after questioning

I’d love to see an analysis of crimes, maybe just homicides, in terms of victims’ and perpetrators’ residence. My admittedly biased read is that a lot of these folks seem to be coming into the City for criminal adventures.
