ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — The children of St. Louis City shed more blood over the weekend.
Between Aug. 23-25, two children and three adults were fatally shot, all in separate instances. During that same time, a third child died of stab wounds.
Jurnee Thompson, 8, was killed near Soldan High School on Friday. Police Chief John Hayden said three other people were wounded in the incident.
"What we need would be for people to tell police what happened, so we can hold some people accountable," Hayden said.
Also, Friday night, reported gunfire at a Parkway North High School football game caused a scare, though no one was injured. The school reports it has counselors, social workers and administrators available Monday.
On Saturday, 10-year-old Nyla Banks died of stab wounds near downtown. Two adults were also fatally shot in the incident.
Janese Crawford, 21, also died Saturday after being shot on I-70 near West Florissant.
Sunday morning, 15-year-old Sentonio Cox was shot in the head and died in the Carondelet neighborhood.
Mayor Lyda Krewson announced a $25,000 reward in each case of a child killed, for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. That's good until Sept. 1. Call 866-371-TIPS if you have relevant information.
Eight more people, including a teenager, were injured from gunfire in the city this weekend as well.
A total of 14 children have died from violence in St. Louis since April.
