Mardi Gras was upon us and despite a recent police shooting the city of St. Louis say that this years event is safer then ever. A spokesman who runs he event says that this shooting is the first of its kind in the 34 years old annual event.

ST. LOUIS  • Organizers of St. Louis’ biggest annual street carnival say the killing of a man with a gun by city police shouldn’t overshadow an otherwise merry Mardi Gras weekend in Soulard.

Mack Bradley, a spokesman for Mardi Gras Inc. that runs the festival, said the Saturday shooting may be the first police shooting in the event’s 34-year history. That most who attended had fun and went home safely shows the celebration is, overall, a safe event, he said.
