ST. LOUIS — Police said Wednesday that it was miraculous that surprise shots fired at two officers missed from a distance of only several feet as they approached a suspicious-looking man downtown.
Their return fire Tuesday evening hit Daiman Connors, 29, of Swansea, who died on the spot without explaining what appeared to be an unprovoked attack.
