St. Louis man accused of triple homicide still at large
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police are searching for a man now accused of killing a couple and another man in a shooting that critically injured a 7-year-old girl.
St. Louis prosecutors on Friday charged 28-year-old Jerome Leon Buress Jr. with three counts of first-degree murder in connection with the June 2 shooting. Buress also is charged with six counts of armed criminal action, two counts of assault, and one count each of shooting a firearm at a motor vehicle and tampering with a witness.
Authorities allege that Buress killed 27-year-old Derrick Irving and 24-year-old Jessica Garth, the parents of wounded 7-year-old Deniya Irving. Thirty-seven-year-old Julian Hayes also was killed.
Police say the shooting took place while the victims were in a car.
Buress remained at large Saturday.
