CU relocated after members die in City Hall shooting
ST. LOUIS (2/11/08)--Kirkwood (Mo.) Municipal CU hoped to be back in its City Hall location today after it had temporarily relocated following a deadly shooting at the Kirkwood City Hall Thursday night. Three of the people killed were members of the credit union, according to the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) (CourierNet Feb. 8). The credit union was closed when Charles Lee "Cookie" Thornton arrived at a City Council meeting and began shooting. Police say he killed five people, including two police officers and three Kirkwood city officials, before police returned fire and killed him. Two others were injured. Kirkwood Mayor Mike Swoboda was shot in the head and is in serious condition. A reporter attending the meeting was shot in the hand. Three of the people killed, including Kirkwood Police Officers William Biggs and Tom Ballman, and Public Works Director Kenneth Yost, were members of the credit union. "Thanks to everyone for their concern and support and prayers for the victims," said Bob Dielschneider, credit union president. Dielschneider said Friday he hoped the credit union will be back in its City Hall by today.
