One man is dead and another is in critical condition after a shooting in North St. Louis Tuesday afternoon.
Police say about 4 p.m, a man approached a home near Fairground Park. He reportedly yelled at the people sitting on the front porch and then fired shots at them.
One man was hit in the chest. He later died. Another man was hit in the back. He's hospitalized in critical, but stable condition.
Police say a 20 year old man has been taken into custody in connection to the shooting. Police say a disagreement over a debt led to the confrontation.
Prison is the next stop for 26-year-old Carl Matthews.
He was sentenced to 10 years behind bars for sex trafficking. Prosecutors say Matthews conspired with co-defendant Carla Matthews to force to women to engage in prostitution at a local hotel. Carl also forced the woman to apply for federal aid and food stamps to help support the operation.
Carla Matthews will go to trial at a later date.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Law enforcement officials say a southwest Missouri man charged in the theft of more than $100,000 worth of cattle and equipment might be part of a larger rustling ring.
DNA found on a paper towel near the scene of a cattle theft in May 2012 led to the arrest last week of 67-year-old Howard Perryman of Monett. Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott says Perryman was a cattle rustler when Arnott started as a deputy sheriff in 1988 and still is.
The Springfield News-Leader reports Perryman has more than 30 felony convictions. He was charged last week with two counts of felony stealing and one count of felony tampering.
He was being held in the Greene County Jail on $1 million bond. He didn't yet have an attorney Tuesday.
