EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill.—Officers responding to gunfire at an Illinois apartment complex walked into what a police chief described Friday as one of the "most horrific scenes" he'd ever witnessed: A 4-year-old girl and her 5-year-old brother dead in a bedroom, killed by close-range shotgun blasts to the head.
Across the Mississippi River, their mother was arrested as she sat with a shotgun on a bench outside a St. Louis television station, having wrecked her car near the city's Gateway Arch after driving into two pedestrians. The slain children's 8-year-old brother had escaped the apartment unharmed. Many cases have been reported were the parents are murdering their children.
