A St. Louis alderman wants the Missouri National Guard to be deployed after a man was fatally shot during an alleyway parking confrontation in another incident of gun violence.

Alderman Brandon Bosley says he’s “done waiting.” He told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that extra hands are needed before summer, when crime typically worsens.

Bosley is pushing a resolution calling on Republican Gov. Mike Parson to send troops to the city’s most crime-troubled neighborhoods. He’s already discussed the idea with the Board of Aldermen’s black caucus.

The shooting that precipitated the call for action happened Saturday after a sport utility vehicle’s driver was shot while confronting another motorist whose car was blocking an alley exit. The victim died Monday.

An email message to Parson’s spokeswoman wasn’t immediately returned.
