EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. -- Illinois State Police and East St. Louis police are asking for the public’s help to identify the gunman who fatally shot a 48-year-old woman.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Angela Heard of East St. Louis died Friday at a St. Louis hospital. Four days earlier the dancer was shot in the head outside a convenience store across the street from her home.
The clerk said Heard walked up to the window around 4 a.m. and left with $90 in cash back. The clerk at the convenience store told News 4 she called 911 after customers found Heard lying on the ground. Police do not believe robbery was a motive in the shooting.
The newspaper reports that Heard’s money, debit card and other things were missing.
Police said they are going door to door at the Orr-Weathers apartment complex where Heard lived but they said there are currently no leads in the case.
