ST. LOUIS - A man who was the victim in a well-publicized
video-recorded shooting in Alton last year was shot to death early
Monday in St. Louis.
Officials with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said
Ryan North, 20, of Alton, was involved in a confrontation with a
group of men on Sunday night on Broadway and Branch streets.
The suspect fled the scene of the original confrontation but
returned just after midnight, and the confrontation resumed. North
was shot to death during the second confrontation, police said. He
was pronounced dead at the scene, and police are looking for a red
SUV that was spotted leaving the area.
Police said they are interviewing witnesses in the case.
