Drone strikes skyscraper

drone hits building

(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.

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