Two men are dead after a double shooting near Saint Louis University Monday night. Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and his friend, a former St. Louis fire captain, rendered aid to the two victims, ages 20 and 21. Greitens, who is a former Navy Seal, and former fire captain Gregg Favre were having dinner at Vito's Pizzeria in Midtown when they heard what sounded like automatic gunfire, Greitens told 5 On Your Side.
“I just came out to have a little bite of pizza with a friend and we’re sitting here and then we heard about 15 to 25 shots right here at Lindell and Grand. When we did, we grabbed our weapons and medical kits,” Greitens said in an interview with 5 On Your Side’s Jenna Barnes.
Greitens added, “I think this should bring home to people what the consequences are when you have leaders who won’t stand up to violence – this is happening again and again and again, we have a record number of murders in the city year and right now you’ve got two bodies out here at Lindell and Grand… automatic gunfire going off like a war zone.”
