(KMOV) – A man faces charges for his alleged involvement in a double shooting that left another man dead in north St. Louis County Monday evening.

Derrick Collins, 31, was arrested and charged Thursday with first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault and three counts of armed criminal action.

According to police, officers responded to a report of a shooting near the intersection of Natural Bridge and BelAire in the Beverly Hills neighborhood around 5:25 p.m. Monday.

Upon their arrival, they found two people inside a vehicle suffering from gunshot wounds. Another person also in the car was not hurt.

One of the shooting victims, identified as 21 year-old Jarrick Boone, was transported to the hospital and later pronounced dead. The other victim, 23, was treated at the hospital and released.

The other victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

 

St. Louis County police say an investigation led them to Collins, who remains in custody without bond.
