Allen S. Templeton

CAHOKIA • A St. Louis man has been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a teen here earlier this week.

The St. Clair County State’s Attorney’s Office on Saturday charged Henry L. Davis, 23, of St. Louis, with first-degree murder. Davis had already been in custody.

Allen S. Templeton, 17, of the 4500 block of Harris Street in St. Louis, was found dead Monday evening in the 80 block of Circle Creek Drive at the Pheasant Run Mobile Home Park.

Cahokia police began investigating and called in the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis for assistance.

A second man is in custody awaiting charges in connection with the death, police said.

Allen S. Templeton, 17, of the 4500 block of Harris Avenue, was found with an apparent gunshot wound to the head about 6:40 p.m. Cahokia police said they were called to Circle Creek Drive about 6:40 p.m. after a report of gunshots.

Killed – Nicole Grier (Lauderhill, FL)

A suspect has been arrested in the murder of a teen mother who was shot and killed in front of her infant daughter in Lauderhill.

Jalil Allen, 26, was arrested Sunday and charged with premeditated murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm in the death of 19-year-old Nicole Grier, Lauderhill Police said.

According to Lauderhill Police, Grier had just picked up her child at a babysitter’s home in the 3300 block of Northwest 18th Street when she was murdered on Dec. 30. The young mom was placing her little boy in his car seat when police say she was gunned down in the driveway. Grier’s father insists he does not know the suspect, nor does he believe his daughter was the target.

A young mother gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Lauderhill appears to have been the victim of a feud, according to a police report.

It’s unclear, however, whether Nicole Grier, 19, was part of the feud or an innocent victim.

Lauderhill police on Monday released a heavily redacted arrest report for Hallandale Beach resident Jalil La’Quentin Allen, 26, who is facing one count of premeditated murder in connection with Grier’s death.

“We actually had an officer in the area on an unrelated call, an alarm call, who actually did hear a series of shots,” Lauderhill Lt. Greg Solowsky said of the shooting, which happened around 6:30 p.m. on the 3300 block of Northwest 18th Street.
