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.
