DAD SHOOTS INTRUDERS, KILLING 1

Posted: Updated:
ST. LOUIS, MO -

(KMOV) – Homicide detectives are investigating after one person was killed and another injured in a shooting in south St. Louis late Monday night that allegedly stemmed from a home break-in.

Police said the incident happened in the 4600 block of Newport near Taft around 11 p.m. 

Police said 31-year-old Terrell Johnson and 33-year-old Cortez McClinton approached a 17-year-old female outside her home while she was collecting some items from her car. Police said the men demanded she return to her home with them.

The girl's father saw what was happening, retrieved his gun and fired several shots at the suspects, striking both of them as they entered the home, police said. Police said the girl's mother also fired shots at the two suspects.

Johnson was pronounced dead at the home. McClinton fled the scene on foot and was later taken to a local hospital. He was listed in critical, but stable condition.

The girl who was attacked, her mother, father, and 5-year-old boy who live at the home were not injured.

As a result, McClinton was charged with murder 2nd, burglary, kidnapping and armed criminal action.
