ST. LOUIS Co. (KSDK) - A 20-year-old man has been charged with murder.

Rashaun K. Like, also known as "Sonny," has been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action for the death of Deshon Duncan.

Duncan was shot to death in the 600 block of Science Hill Drive around 4:30 p.m. Monday, February 4. This was the first murder to occur in Bellefontaine Neighbors in 12 years.

Court documents state Like and Duncan had a "violent encounter several years ago," and that Like approached Duncan on the street to confront him about that encounter.

Authorities say Like pulled a gun out from his waist band and shot Duncan several times as Duncan tried to run away.

Duncan's wake and funeral are on Tuesday starting at 10 a.m. at Friendly Temple located at 5544 Dr Martin Luther King Dr in Saint Louis.
