ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A suspect was shot and killed in north St. Louis early Monday morning.

Homicide detectives were called to the 3200 block of Greer Avenue after 37-year-old Pierre Sullivan was pronounced dead following a shooting around 12:50 a.m.

The 30-year-old who fired the fatal shot said Sullivan had caused a disturbance in the area on Sunday and threatened to kill several residents. When Sullivan returned the following day, he allegedly was seen pulling a gun from his waistband. When the 30-year-old man saw him pulling the gun, he fired his weapon, striking Sullivan.

Witnesses were interviewed by police and their statements corroborated with the events described by the 30-year-old, police said.

The investigation is ongoing.
