ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Homeowners in north St. Louis are fighting back after two teens were injured in gunfire over the weekend.
Neighbors say they believe part of the gun problem in their area could be silenced by restricting traffic- only allowing those who live in the area to come through.
Long-time homeowners have just signed a petition to make North Crest, one of the streets in their neighborhood, a one-way street. By doing this, they hope to curb crime by making it harder to get in and out.
Their effort is gaining steam after the weekend’s violence.
