St. Louis couple draw firearms on protesters outside their home

A married couple brandished firearms at a group of protesters who marched through their upscale St. Louis neighborhood on Sunday night to call for the resignation of Mayor Lyda Krewson.

The male homeowner stood barefoot on his Renaissance-style porch in the Central West End neighborhood while carrying a semi-automatic weapon at around 6 p.m. local time, while his wife pointed a pistol at the gathering.

A video on Twitter showed the woman pointed the firearm at passing protestors while shouting.

A protester wearing a t-shirt that read, “Hands up, don’t shoot,” then urges participants to relocate into the street in an attempt to diffuse the situation.

The protesters were en route to Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home to demand her resignation after she released names and addresses of residents who suggested defunding the police department, reported KSDK.

The couple’s “Midwestern palazzo” home was featured in St. Louis Magazine in August 2018 after they completed a major renovation.

They showed off their dome gilt ceiling and curved double staircase of marble leading to the second- and third-floor landings.

“The glass in the windows” are from the second-floor reception hall at the 14th century Palazzo Davanzati in Florence, “and the shutters, at least the ironwork, are probably original,” the couple told the magazine.
