Fatal shooting at south St. Louis City apartment, suspect in custody

S. LOUIS – One person is dead and another is in custody after an overnight murder at a south St. Louis apartment building.

It happened at the ‘Broadway Bluffs Apartments’ on South Broadway close to Bates and not far from Interstate 55. The police are confirming that a suspect is in custody in connection with the killing.

Police rushed to the scene just before 3:30 a.m. Upon arrival, we’re told they found a male victim shot multiple times. He was unconscious and not breathing. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

We don’t have an age for the person who was killed or any details from the police about what may have led to the violence. It appeared that homicide detectives were focusing a lot of their attention inside the building, perhaps in a second-floor unit.

Police flashlights could be seen in what looked like an apartment on the second floor. Detectives at the scene are still not releasing many details, including whether this was an inside or an outside scene.
