FLORISSANT, Mo. — A man was taken into police custody earlier this month for a fatal shooting in north St. Louis County that happened back in September.

The deadly shooting happened at about 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 29 at the Spanish Cove apartment complex in Florissant, St. Louis County police said. 

The incident happened as a result of a personal dispute between two people who knew each other, and it left one of them dead, 24-year-old Ra'hmello Stewart of St. Louis.

St. Louis County police said Stewart's suspected killer, 18, was admitted to the Center of the St. Louis County Family County on March 9 because he was underage at the time of the incident. Unnamed by police due to his juvenile offense, the man was charged with second-degree murder.
