ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Police say they have arrested a person of interest in connection to a Chuck E. Cheese’s shooting in St. Charles. Not only is he a person of interest in the shooting, but police say he is the same man involved in a carjacking in Alton.
St. Charles police have released surveillance video of Deven Strauther, 23, entering the Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant. The video shows a man firing a gun near the entrance. However, authorities have not officially said what Strauther’s connection is to the shooting, but do say he is the same man who was arrested after a crash in north St. Louis on Friday.
Investigators say Strauther allegedly stole a red Camaro in Alton at gunpoint, led police on a chase into St. Louis, and crashed on Bulwer Avenue near Highway 70. As he fled the scene, a 9mm handgun fell out of the stolen car. He has been arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.
The investigation is ongoing.
