Drone strikes skyscraper

(KSDK) Police are investigating after a drone crashed in downtown St. Louis Monday afternoon.

Schron Jackson, a spokesperson for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, says officers responded to the Metropolitan Square building around 4 p.m. Monday after security officers called about a recovered article from a 30th floor balcony.

Jackson says the article is a DJI Phantom II Quadcopter, controlled through WiFi. It crashed into the building and landed on the balcony. Pieces of the drone were broken from the crash.

Joshua Foster lives downtown St. Louis and doesn’t want to see a drone fly by his window that could potentially spy on him.

“It’s crazy that a drone actually hit this building and nobody knows where it came from?” he said. “That’s sickening.”
