Less than a month ago, crosshair stickers were placed on lawmakers' doors. And now, 24 hours before a hearing on a bill to heighten security in the Capitol Building, a threatening email was sent to Senate leadership.
Wrap: One month after crosshair stickers were placed on the door of six lawmakers in the capitol building, St. Louis City Senator Robin Wright-Jones, sponsored a bill to put security cameras in the hallways of the statehouse.
The cameras could cost upwards of one million dollars, depending on the technology.
During the hearing, Wright-Jones notified the Senate General Laws committee of an email received by President Pro Tem Rob Mayer threatening four state senators.
Senators Callahan, Goodman, Wright-Jones and Justus.
The email was sent early in the morning and an apology e-mail, from the same account, was sent this afternoon.
