State Auditor Schweich dead from self-inflicted gunshot wound
Schweich was taken to a St. Louis-area hospital Thursday after what his office initially described as "a medical situation" that occurred at his home in Clayton.
Earlier, a police source said Schweich had sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but the initial statement from Schweich's office said only that he was being treated.
"He is receiving treatment at a local hospital," the earlier statement said. "We ask for respect and privacy for him and his family during this time."
