ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Police are looking for a gunman in connection with a double homicide in north St. Louis, across the street from a middle school.

It happened around 2:30 Wednesday afternoon on Belt Avenue and Cote Brilliante across from Langston Middle School.

Police say 35-year-old Michael Hennings and 27-year-old Ahsley Townsend sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the head and body inside a parked car. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say it wasn't a drive-by, as witnesses told police the suspect got out of his car and approached the victims.

    I read Dollinger comment before I saw the report. You are right she is “CREEPY” They need to talk to her because why was she smiling when she said they were boyfriend/girlfriend. There should have been NO smile, grin or anything on her face after loss of two young people.

    I notice that she smiles on every report serious or not. My friend says she has Botocks and can not control her facial expressions, i don’t know but she is not good at reporting, maybe they can put her on different assignments but no serious stuff bacause today that looked really bad.

    Does anyone remember when they put Mandy Murphy on that gang activity, she looked like a deer in headlights because that isn’t her style reporting on bad things like that. She is more laid back.
