EAST ST. LOUIS, IL (KTVI) – Friday night in East St. Louis, authorities say they're upping the ante on ending a run of violence which officials now believe amounts to a turf battle. 

The city is threatening to arrest teens who are out late or out of school. They're offering up the same threat for those loitering on problem street corners.  But many wonder if any of this will make the violence stop.
