OVERLAND, Mo. — A 23-year-old man has been charged with killing another man after an argument over who had the faster vehicle.
St. Louis County prosecutors charged Deonte Robinson with first-degree murder and armed criminal action Saturday in connection with Friday’s shooting.
Police said Robinson was arguing with Sean Waldon Friday outside a home in the St. Louis suburb of Overland, at 9400 block of Miriam Avenue, before the shooting. Court documents say Robinson shot Waldon as he tried to get into a car to leave with his family.
Robinson was not in custody as of Saturday afternoon. His bail was set at $1 million cash.
