ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The suspect wanted in two St. Louis-area shootings was arrested in Tennessee Thursday.

Casey Lowery, 36, was taken into custody Thursday night in Tennessee. Earlier in the day, Lowery was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action after Andre Jones, 28, of Dellwood, was shot and killed in a gas station parking lot.

He was later charged with another count of first-degree murder, two more counts of armed criminal action and first-degree assault for his alleged role in a shooting in the Baden neighborhood in St. Louis City that also took place Thursday.

A man in the Baden neighborhood reported a street light was out in the 1100 block of Canaan. When a utility worker arrived to repair the light, Lowery approached him and allegedly shot at the light. Lowery was talking to the homeowner when shots were fired.

When the worker confronted Lowery for shooting at the light, Lowery turned around and shot the homeowner, 52, in the head around 8:45 a.m., according to police.

After seeing Lowery shoot the man, the utility worker got into his truck and drove off. The worker then called the victim’s phone number since he had it on the work order to check on his condition following the shooting. While placing the call, the worker looked up and noticed Lowery was at the right of his truck. Lowery reportedly then demanded the worker’s phone and took off.

When police arrived on the scene, they found a woman who lived in the area, Keiva Jones, 29, who had also been shot in the head in an alley about 20 to 30 yards away.

Jones was pronounced dead and the 52-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical, unstable condition. Police told News 4 the utility worker was not injured.

According to officials in McNairy County, Lowery was arrested for indecent exposure and resisting arrest.
