RIVERVIEW, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Police have taken a suspect into custody after a 31-year-old man was found shot to death in Riverview.

According to police, Clarence Comer, 31, arrived at a home in the 300 block of Scenic Drive around 11:15 a.m. on May 14 to retrieve some of his belongings from a former girlfriend. The 31-year-old man was reportedly confronted by a suspect armed with a handgun in the driveway of the home.

In a news release, police said Comer asked the suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Dominique Gilliam, 'if he was going to use it'. Gilliam then fired 2 shots at Comer, according to St. Louis County police.

After the shooting, the victim's former girlfriend jumped into the driver's seat of Gilliam's car, attempting to flee the scene. At the same time, Gilliam allegedly hopped into the back seat of the car and continued to fire multiple shots at Comer.

Authorities said Comer collapsed at the scene, where he died as a result of a gunshot wound to the chest.

Gilliam was charged with one count of second-degree murder, one count of unlawful use of a weapon and two counts of armed criminal action. He is held on a $ 250,000 bond.
