St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Police have identified the child who was shot and killed in his home Wednesday night.

 

11-year-old Anotonio Johnson was sitting at his computer when a shooter fired between eight and ten shots into the house. Police Chief Sam Dotson says Antonio died at the scene. Dotson says the gunman climbed onto the ledge of a side window, broke the glass and started shooting.

 

There were seven people in the house including a 4 year old, two teenagers,  three adults and the 11-year-old victim. One of the teens had been shot in a prior incident and police are hoping he can provide some useful information about last night's attack.

   St. Louis police say three people taken into custody yesterday aren't connected to the murder of a teen who was gunned down near a school bus stop Tuesday morning.  

   Police say 16 year old James Moore had been waiting for the school bus at Goodfellow and St. Louis Avenue when a masked man got out of a car, chased him into a nearby park and shot him several times.  Moore died at the scene.  

   Later in the day, police stopped a car matching the description of the one used in the murder.  The three suspects from that car who were initially questioned in the murder didn't get off scot-free.  They're facing charges for fleeing from police.  

   The investigation into Moore's death is ongoing.  Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A lawmaker pushing legislation to stiffen sentences for gun crimes called off action on the bill Tuesday.

Ryan Keith is a spokesman for Rep. Mike Zalewski of Riverside. He says Zalewski is still meeting with opponents of the bill with an eye toward compromise. It was scheduled for a committee hearing Tuesday.

The measure would require a 3-year prison sentence for illegally packing a loaded gun. Felons and gang members could get 10 years in prison.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has made it a legislative priority because of rampant gun violence in Chicago.

But the National Rifle Association is worried that law-abiding gun owners who are in the wrong place at the wrong time could get socked with a three-year sentence.
