Two suspects have been charged in a deadly south St. Louis shooting that occurred on August 27.

Officers were called to the location for a "supposed suspicious death" and upon arrival, they found 19-year-old Joseph Lee with gunshot wounds to the back in the 3700 block of Pennsylvania. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lee was found lifeless in a rear basement stairwell.

Last week, police charged 18-year-old James Columbus with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery, and armed criminal action. A week later, police charged a second man, 18-year-old Glenn Robinson of Imperial, with the same.

Columbus is being held on a $250,000 cash-only bond.
