Photos: Guns ’N Hoses returns after pandemic hiatus

Guns ’N Hoses, the annual event that raises money for local nonprofit BackStoppers, returned to Enterprise Center in St. Louis on Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2021. BackStoppers provides financial support for families of area first responders who die in the line of duty. 

It was a somber comeback: A record 10 first responders in the St. Louis region have died on the job since January 2020. Three men died from COVID-19 and one from a heart attack. Four officers were fatally shot, and two were struck and killed by cars.
