ST. LOUIS (AP) - A protest forced a large St. Louis-area shopping mall to close for an hour on one of the year's busiest shopping days, and renewed concerns by protest leaders about how police handle demonstrations. Protesters marched Friday at the St. Louis Galleria mall. Seven people were arrested after a police order to disperse, including Democratic state Rep. Bruce Franks Jr. The mall reopened Friday afternoon.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A homeless man found sleeping in a Kansas storage unit with his children and his dismembered wife's remains is now suspected of killing a California man who vanished last year. Justin Rey was already jailed in Kansas when he was charged in California on Wednesday in the death of Sean Ty Ferel. Ferel disappeared after going on vacation with Rey in 2016.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A quirk in the mail delivery system is forcing some residents in rural northern Missouri to have Iowa mailing addresses, causing problems when they vote, pay taxes and even when they die. Sen. Claire McCaskill calls it "one of the dumbest things" she's seen and is seeking help from the U.S. Postal Service. The agency says it's working with the Missouri senator. Local officials have been asking for help for years. In one county, residents say accurate addresses are critical for 911 systems.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Three people have been hurt in a shooting in south St. Louis. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police were called just after 4 p.m. Friday. Police said in a post on the department's website that one of the victims was shot multiple times and was losing consciousness. Two other victims were conscious. No further information was immediately available.
