Soros-Backed Attorney Refuses to Charge Cinco De Mayo Shooting Suspect

A woman arrested in an alleged shooting in St. Louis has been released and no charges are being pressed, according to report.

Amber Booker, 33, was arrested Saturday night following a shooting at a Cinco de Mayo festival.

"Police shared images of two suspects involved in the shooting, with one image depicting a woman suspected to be Booker, and another of a man. In both pictures, the suspects are holding guns," Fox News reported.

"The news station learned from the police department that circuit attorney Kim Gardner's office refused to press charges because of a 'lack of evidence' for each count charged. The prosecutor's office also said the victim refused to assist in the investigation," it added.

"We are working closely with police on this on-going investigation. We cannot comment further at this time," the St. Louis Attorney's Office told Fox 2.

"It's unclear what this might mean for another suspect wanted by SLMPD in the shooting. Police have identified another person of interest in this case, though have not arrested him yet or disclosed their identity," the report added.

Two people were struck by bullets during the shooting. Both victims were treated and are expected to recover.

The situation arose when some men began to fight and one of those involved began to wave a firearm. Booker reportedly fired a shot, though details related to the account have not been released.

A second man remains a suspect and has not yet been arrested. Investigators are asking anyone with information about the situation to contact the St. Louis police.

The concerning release of the woman with no charges adds to concerns with Gardner's office that have led to many calling for her resignation in response to the city's growing crime concerns.
