Police make arrest in shooting of 9-year-old Ferguson girl

ST. LOUIS (KTRS) – An arrest has been made in connection with the shooting death of 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden. Ferguson police have charged 21-year-old De’Eris Brown of O’Fallon, Mo. with six felony counts including second degree murder.

According to court documents, an informant came forward stating Brown admitted to fire the shots that killed Bolden. In addition, a separate witness also identified Brown as the shooter.

Brown was taken into custody last night and investigators said that Brown later confessed to shooting into Bolden’s house, although it’s not clear at this time as to what prompted those shots to be fired.

Bolden was shot to death on Aug. 18th while doing homework on her mother’s bed. We’ll continue to follow this developing story and have updates on air and online.
