A member of a violent St. Louis gang named after President Barack Obama, the Obama Boyz, has been charged with shooting two teenagers in a drive-by shooting Saturday afternoon in St. Louis, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

18-year-old Anthony Jamal Lee shot a 13-year-old boy in his side, sending him to the hospital, and Lee’s bullets also grazed a 17-year-old boy’s face and arm, the charges read.

Lee may not be released in time to vote in the presidential election, unless someone wants to pay his $100,000 bail. He is charged with 10 felony charges of first-degree assault, armed criminal action and firing shots from a vehicle.

The latest Rasmussen poll reveals Mitt Romney leading in Missouri with 48 percent of the vote to Obama’s 45 percent.

Obama lost Missouri to Sen. John McCain by almost two points in the 2008 presidential election.
