The mayor of St. Louis was speaking to reporters outdoors Friday when she was rudely interrupted – by the sound of nearby gunfire.

“Oh, isn’t that wonderful?” Mayor Tishaura Jones said, pausing briefly with a bemused expression, before continuing with what she was saying, FOX 2 in St. Louis reported.


“I don’t flinch when gunshots ring out; my son and I often fall asleep to a lullaby of gunshots,” Jones wrote.

Earlier, she shared more reactions with reporters.

“I hear gunshots in my neighborhood every night,” she said, according to KMOV-TV in St. Louis. {snip}
