UNIVERSITY CITY, MO (KTVI) - University City police announced an arrest in connection with Saturday’s Heman Park shooting, but charges so far are unrelated to the killing.  20-year-old Mario Wallace died & a 39-year-old man is recovering from being shot in the leg.

They were attending a high school alumni picnic.  Witnesses described seeing a green Pontiac Grand Prix drive away from the shooting.  A Hillsdale police K-9 officer later reported seeing that car and chased it until it crashed at Skinker and Cabanne.

The driver faces charges of assault on a law-enforcement officer, assault on a K-9 and a weapons charge. Police are not yet releasing the suspect's name and say they're still looking for more information from the public.

      Did you not read the part where it said witnesses describes seeing a green Pontiac Prix driving away from the scene? That would suggest someone already snitched. You’re in such a hurry to be the first dummy to post something ignorant you failed to read the article.
