Last week one guy stabbed another to death over a bag of Cheetos. This week one guy blasts another with a shotgun over Pork Steaks. Mmm....pork steaks!


ST. LOUIS John Cunningham of Jennings used a shotgun to settle a fight with his uncle over pork steaks early Monday in the 5600 block of Hiller Place, St. Louis police say.

Cunningham, 43, of the 2000 block of Wedgewood Drive in Jennings, was charged Monday with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Lessie E. Lowe, 44.

Lowe, who lived on Hiller Place,*is the maternal uncle of Cunningham, police say.

The men were at a home on*Hiller Place when they argued over whether the cuts of meat they were planning to cook were pork steaks or pork chops, police say.

Cunningham said they were pork steaks, police said. Lowe disagreed.
After the argument became physical about 1 a.m. Monday, the two had to be*separated by someone*else in the home, police say. Cunningham*went to another part of the home, grabbed a*shotgun and shot Lowe, police said.
Lowe*died later at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Cunningham, who*was correct about the meat, was taken into custody.*

L.C. Lowe of Hazelwood, who is Lessie Lowe's*oldest brother and one of 17 siblings, said Lessie Lowe was a "smart young man" who liked to fix cars and*make other repairs.*L.C. Lowe said he wasn't at the home on Hiller Place when*his brother was slain,*but that he knew Cunningham and his brother were close and liked to hang around together.

IF these people had more EBT cards, there would be no reason to kill each other over food.

I'll be glad when the recession ends and we can go back to having St. Louis kill people over steaks.

And what's with all the "*" in the OP?

Good thing there was a shotgun in the house. Otherwise, Lowe may have undercooked those steaks giving the party goers trichinosis. Cunningham should be hailed as a hero!

Those are pellet holes from the shotgun blast.
