A senseless murder in a neighborhood near downtown St. Louis.

Police say a man was shot several times when he went to answer a knock on the back door of his apartment. 35-year-old Mark Wells lived in the apartment at Samual Shepard and Leffingwell--several blocks northeast of Harris-Stowe University--with some of his kids. When he went to answer the door, police believe several suspects shot through the door and killed him.

Two of his boys were asleep upstairs when the shooting occurred. Evidence points towards multiple guns being used.

Police have no suspects and ask anyone with information to call Crimestoppers 1-866-371-TIPS.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis man has been sentenced to life in prison plus 120 years for a deadly apartment shooting.

St. Louis Circuit Judge Michael David sentenced 36-year-old Donnell Rivers Friday for first-degree murder, first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

The Post-Dispatch reports that Rivers fired into the apartment multiple times in December 2010, killing 26-year-old Cynthia Williams. None of the other three people in the apartment were hurt.

A statement from Williams' mother was read during the hearing. The statement said that Rivers "should never be allowed to hurt anyone else." An assistant circuit attorney also said that Rivers had been placed on parole four months before the shooting.
