One of St.Louis’ biggest annual celebrations has been marred by violence. Two incidents at the annual Annie Malone Parade have left six people hurt. The most serious injury is to a 17-year-old girl, who was slashed by another 17-year-old girl. Police say the incident stemmed from a school feud. Five people were hurt in another incident by pellets from a shotgun. Officers are investigating to learn if somebody fired the shotgun at a specific target and from where the shot was fired. The Annie Malone parade is one of the oldest African-American parades in the nation. It honors entrepreneur Annie Turnbo Malone and her work on behalf of orphans in St. Louis.
