ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – A 29-year-old man has been charged for reportedly shooting the mother of his baby and then taking off with their infant in the 3200 block of Meramec in south St. Louis on December 14. The two-month-old baby was also found unharmed.
The mother of the gunshot victim says the night of the shooting that her daughter, 29, called to say she got in an argument with her boyfriend, Demario Stiff, and that he had a gun.
She was then going to walk to her mother’s house on California, but she said the boyfriend showed up and they got into an argument. He had the couple’s son with him at the time.
Minutes later, the victim’s mother said a detective called and said her daughter had been shot in the hip.
The suspect took off with the baby, but has since been caught.
Stiff is facing charges for armed criminal action, shooting at or from a motor vehicle and first degree domestic assault. Stiff already had warrants on a prior incident involving the same victim for kidnapping and domestic assault.
His bond was set at $75,000.
