ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Corey Hall was shot and killed Sunday night at Ballpark Village when he was out celebrating his birthday with friends and family.

The 38-year-old from Spanish Lake was a father of two daughters, a coach, a friend and a newlywed having just gotten married earlier this month.

La Kenya Harrell, a friend of Hall’s, found out about the shooting on Facebook Monday morning. She said hearing that he had passed was hard to believe.

“He was always smiling,” said Harrell. “Just in a good mood all the time.

Carlos Spann was another friend of Hall’s who spoke highly of Hall as a father and husband.

“Just a working man, family man,” said Spann. “Always took care of his family, kids and all that. He’d give you the shirt off his back if you asked for it. He didn’t get into trouble or anything, just a well-rounded guy.”
