A driver was fatally shot from another vehicle at an intersection near Calvary Cemetery late Saturday night, police said.
The victim was identified as Corey Johnson, 39, of the 3900 block of Laramie Drive in St. Louis County.
Authorities said Johnson was driving a late-model Chrysler 200 north on North Broadway near the intersection of Switzer Avenue about 11:45 p.m. Saturday when the occupant of another vehicle — also a late model Chrysler 200 — opened fire, striking Johnson in the chest and head.
The shooting caused Johnson’s vehicle to careen into a light pole before coming to rest on the steps of an abandoned building.
Police said the second car made a U-turn after the shooting and fled south on Broadway.
On 12/21/13, at 11:51 police were called to Broadway and Switzer relative to a victim of a shooting.
Victim Cory Johnson was slumped at the wheel of a white Dodge pickup truck. He died from gunshot wounds to his chest and head.
The suspects, who were occupying a DARK GRAY, NEWER MODEL CHRYSLER 200, with tinted windows, and an unknown plate, pulled along side the victim and shot him several times. The suspects then made a u-turn, driving southbound on N. Broadway away from the scene.
