6-year-old heart patient’s shooting death rattles St. Louis

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) Six-year-old Marcus Johnson Junior’s family will bury him today, after he was killed last week in an attack his parents say stemmed from a traffic dispute.

The kindergartner visited O’Fallon Park with his parents, four siblings, and other friends and family members while recovering from heart surgery one week earlier and after a doctor’s visit that same day.

Police are searching for the occupants of a car who shot at the family’s minivan as they left the north St. Louis park.

Marcus Johnson Sr. says he returned fire in self-defense as the rolling shootout continued for several blocks. Marcus’ 15-year-old brother and a 69-year-old family friend were also wounded.

Johnson said Marcus, his youngest son, was diagnosed with a heart ailment as an infant.
