NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY ( – A suspect is on the run after a man was killed in Moline Acres Tuesday night.

Moline Acres homicide April 13

Officers were called to the 2300 block of Chambers Road around 6:45 p.m. after learning a man had been shot multiple times inside of a home. When officers arrived, the victim was inside of a home and they believed the armed suspect was barricaded inside as well. Officers were able to get the shooting victim out of the home and take him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He was later identified as Marquise Foston, 28. 

Since it was believed the suspect was still inside of the home, St. Louis County’s Tactical Operations Unit was called to the scene. About four hours after the fatal shooting was first reported, St. Louis County police said a search of the home found that the suspect had left the area prior to the SWAT team arriving.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-8477 and leave an anonymous tip.
