ST. LOUIS, MO — Homicide detectives were called to the back parking lot of the Imo's Pizza near Spring and Delor. The scene was just a few blocks away from where police say an Imo's worker was justified in shooting and killing a robbery suspect.

A source close to the investigation tells FOX 2 the shooting that happened Monday just after 8pm does not appear to be connected to last week's shooting. Instead it is possible the shooting was connected to a drug deal.

The shooting victim was not an Imo's employee. He was shot in the chest and was conscious when taken to an area hospital. He was shot while inside a car on the back parking lot.
