Man shot and killed at St. Louis gas station, police say carjacking may be motive

A 5 On Your Side photojournalist spotted at least five evidence markers and a gun on the ground amidst broken glass

ST. LOUIS — A man was shot and killed Monday morning at a gas station in north St. Louis' Hyde Park neighborhood. Police believe carjacking could have been a possible motive, according to police sources. 

He has been identified as 30-year-old Corbin Turman.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department responded just after 2 a.m. to a shooting at the Phillips 66 on 1113 Salisbury Street. Officers found Turman lying in the parking lot with gunshot wounds.

The gunmen shot Turman through the window and dragged him from his vehicle, the source said. They took off with his car, a 2016 Nissan Altima with temporary Missouri tags.

Turman was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The station was taped off early Monday morning as police investigated. A 5 On Your Side photojournalist spotted at least five evidence markers and a gun on the ground amidst broken glass. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the department's Homicide Division directly at 314- 444-5371 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS (8477). 

This is a developing story. It will be updated as more information becomes available.
