6-Year-Old Marcus Johnson Shot to Death, 15-Year-Old and 69-Year-Old Man Wounded in St. Louis


St. Louis police are asking for the public’s help to identify the persons responsible for the shooting death of 6-year-old Marcus Johnson and wounding of a 15-year-old and a 69-year-old man.

Marcus Johnson, was riding in a minivan full of children and adults after leaving O’Fallon Park Wednesday night. Police say a car pulled up alongside the minivan on West Florissant and someone inside opened fire.

A photograph of a St. Louis police officer’s blood soaked shirt moved many St. Louisans this week. The blood was from a six-year-boy whom a St. Louis police officer rushed to the hospital.

In a heartfelt blog post, St. Louis Police Officer Don Re said the officer in question arrived before paramedics. The boy was critical, so the officer placed him in his car and raced to the hospital in hopes of saving the child’s life.
