On Tuesday, August 27, 2019 at approximately 10:00 p.m., officers from the North County Precinct were called to the 6800 block of Parker Road for a report of shots fired at a vehicle.
The probable cause statement reads: “The defendant and the victim were in a romantic relationship for approximately 6 years, and have one child in common. On the date of the incident, the victim and defendant ended their relationship that morning. Later that day they met at the McDonalds on Parker Rd. to exchange custody of their child, M.A. aged 3. The defendant exited the vehicle he was riding in, and accompanied their son to victim’s vehicle. After the child was in the car, the defendant began to accuse the victim of stealing his belongings. The victim allowed the defendant to search her car for his belongings, to no avail. After the victim and her passengers were inside of the vehicle with the windows up, the defendant removed a firearm from his pocket, and began banging on the window of the victim’s vehicle. The victim then began to drive away, and the defendant fired multiple rounds at the vehicle, striking the vehicle once on the rear driver’s side of the vehicle, and once on the rear passenger’s side of the vehicle, flattening the tire. Inside of the vehicle, in addition to the victim and her son, were the defendant’s cousin and her two children, each under the age of 17. The defendant was arrested shortly after the incident, and admitted to discharging the firearm.”
Officers from the St. Louis County Police Department North County Precinct are conducting the investigation.
