St. Louis, MO – A first-term state legislator from St. Louis has been arrested on suspicion of firing a pistol at a man.
State Rep. Rodney R. Hubbard, a Democrat, campaigned on a desire to fight crime. He was arrested Sunday after a neighbor reported Hubbard had fired several shots at him during a quarrel on Saturday. Hubbard says he was not involved in a shooting.
The Democrat lives in a St. Louis public housing complex. Police say he and the man are neighbors and knew each other before the shooting.
