November 26, 2018

NORMANDY, Mo. (AP) — Authorities are looking for a man suspected of fatally shooting a 16-year-old in the St. Louis area.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Gerrian Jerrod Green Jr. was shot about 1:30 p.m. Saturday after an argument inside a Normandy home spilled outside. Green’s mother, Talisa Townsend, said Sunday that her 10-year-old daughter was with her brother when he was shot. She says her daughter “ran for her life” and “thought she was going to get shot, too.”

Police are asking the public for helping finding 18-year-old Korrie Black. No charges were immediately filed. But police distributed a photo of Black, saying they consider him armed and dangerous.

Townsend says her son and Black were friends. She begged him to turn himself in, saying she forgives him but wants answers.
