Retracing Sunday Night's Shooting Spree

I'm convinced that Google Maps will someday provide us with a form of virtual travel that's just as good as the real thing. For example, I already use the Web site (and its incredible Street View feature) to revisit places I've traveled and check out new places I'd like to see.

It can also be used for less exotic jaunts. Like retracing that shooting spree Sunday night in St. Louis that ended with four people shot within the span of five hours. Miraculously, none of the injuries are considered life threatening.
