Police seek suspects in man’s killing in St. Louis suburb

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Police in suburban St. Louis are looking for two suspects in the shooting death this week of a 19-year-old man. Police say the shooting happened Tuesday afternoon in Ferguson, and arriving officers found two victims — a man suffering from gunshot wounds and another who had been battered. Police have identified the man shot as 19-year-old Elijha Walton. Walton was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The man who was assaulted was treated at the hospital and released. Police said the shooting stemmed from an argument that escalated to a fight, then shots being fired. Police say the suspects and victims knew each other. No arrests had been reported by Thursday morning.
