South St. Louis child’s shooting death hits school hard
ST. LOUIS (AP) – An 11-year-old boy shot dead inside his St. Louis home was a “model student” who was popular among his classmates and teachers.
Antonio was among seven people inside the home Wednesday night when a gunman climbed up on a ledge and fired eight to 10 shots through a first-floor window. Antonio, shot in the head, was the only person struck.
Police are still searching for the gunman and say it was a targeted shooting.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Antonio’s death hit hard at Froebel Elementary School. His fourth-grade teacher, Donna Horton, says Antonio was shy but popular, a hard-working boy who was studious.
