ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office charged a 25-year-old man for a double shooting earlier this summer that claimed the life of one person following a domestic dispute with his ex-girlfriend.

According to Schron Jackson, a spokeswoman, the shooting took place around midnight on June 29 at a residence in the 2500 block of Semple, that’s in the Wells-Goodfellow neighborhood.

Police found the victim, 27-year-old Marvin Carter, inside the home with gunshot wounds on his torso, chest, and arm. Carter was rushed to a local hospital where he later died. A 30-year-old woman in the home had been shot in the leg multiple times and required medical treatment.

During the course of their investigation, police learned the woman got into an argument with her ex-boyfriend, identified as 25-year-old Camarion Beal, earlier in the evening. Beal returned to the residence later and fired shots at both victims.

The female victim’s three children were inside the home at the time of the shooting, Jackson said. Beal and the female had a child together.

Prosecutors charged Beal with first-degree murder, first-degree domestic assault, and two counts of armed criminal action. He remains jailed without bond.

Our partners at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch report Beal has a lengthy criminal record, including domestic violence charges from April 2015. He’s accused of attacking the same female victim.

Beal also allegedly choked a different woman on August 27. Police said he attacked this victim with a belt after she learned he was a suspect in a murder investigation.

In 2010, Beal spent a month in jail after his dog was found its collar embedded in its skin.
