(KMOV) – Police are searching for a suspect after a 36-year-old man was shot to death at a north St. Louis County home on Wednesday.

Authorities say Charles Williams went to a house in the 3600 block of Avondale Ave. in Uplands Park about 1:50 so he could retrieve some items.

Police say a woman inside the home told Williams to leave and he kicked in the door. Authorities say he apologized and tried to fix the door while the woman called her son.

Police say the son and his friend showed up and fired a shot at Williams, hitting him in the leg.

Authorities say Williams went into the home and the suspect followed, firing more shots. Williams was struck an unknown amount of times and later pronounced dead.

Police were still trying to determine the relationship between Williams and the suspect’s mother.

Additional details were not immediately available.
