Police: Gunman killed following south St. Louis shooting
ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Police have identified the man accused of shoot and killing his ex-girlfriend and her teen daughter.
Terence Anderson, 37, was shot and killed by police in north St. Louis.
Police say they were called to a home in the 4600 block of Tennessee shortly before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a domestic disturbance and shooting.
When officers arrived they found 32-year-old Nichole Haynes with gunshot wounds to her head and legs. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her 15-year-old daughter was found with gunshot wounds to the hip and arm. She was taken to an area hospital and is listed in serious but stable condition. She is expected to survive.
A description of Anderson's vehicle, spotted near the home during the incident, was broadcast, and officers spotted it a short time later in the 4100 block of Turner in north St. Louis.
Officers set out spike strips, which caused Anderson's tires to deflate, but police say he put the vehicle in reverse, and started driving toward officers while pointing a gun at them.
Two police officers feared for their safety and fired at Anderson.
Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene. His weapon was recovered by police.
The officers who fired at Anderson are described as 30-year-old males with four years of service with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. They have been placed on administrative leave while police continue the investigation, which is standard procedure.
