ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - A small group brought a strong message to St. Louis Police headquarters downtown Thursday morning. The group called "All Lives Matter" stood outside police headquarters highlighting the troubling amount of murders in the city and how many have not been solved. Most in the group have had loved ones murdered and the cases still open.

The group says more police officers and more detectives are needed. City police leaders understand the concerns. They say a move to add 160 more officers is still in the Board of Aldermen. They also say they need the community`s cooperation to solve crimes.
