(KMOV.com) – A St. Charles woman was charged with murder after a man was shot and killed in a Festus neighborhood Monday night.

Makenzie Halinski, 20, was charged with first-degree involuntary manslaughter on Tuesday.

 Authorities said they responded to a call for a shooting at an apartment in the 400 block of S. 5th St. just before 11 p.m. and found Cole L. Campbell, 20, with a gunshot wound.

Paramedics tried to treat him but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said Halinski was taken into custody shortly after.

Officials said a St. Louis County Bomb and Arson unit was investigating after several suspicious items – including pipe bomb components - were found inside the residence.

Additional information was not immediately available.
