Man fatally shot during fight near St. Louis-area home

O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) – Suburban St. Louis police say a 26-year-old man has been fatally shot during a fight with his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1IDGzTg ) reports that William R. McMahan of Foley was shot several times in the chest around 1 a.m. Saturday near O’Fallon. St. Charles County police Capt. David Tiefenbrunn says McMahan was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Tiefenbrunn says the shooting happened after McMahan’s girlfriend went to her ex-boyfriend’s home to discuss their 2-year-old child. Tiefenbrunn says that when McMahan couldn’t reach his girlfriend, he went to the ex-boyfriend’s house and a fight broke out.

Police say the ex-boyfriend is claiming self-defense in the shooting. He was taken into custody pending an investigation.

The toddler wasn’t in the home during the shooting.
