St. Charles Police Lt. Mike Akers said a vehicle was located on the Cave Springs Road overpass just south of Interstate 70 around 11 p.m. Tuesday. Inside the vehicle police found Daniel Christopher Brennan, 23, with a gunshot wound.
Investigators said he was shot somewhere else in St. Charles, and drove to the location he was found.
