ST. LOUIS, MO — A "person of interest" has been arrested on charges unrelated to the homicide of Roth “Craig” LeFebvre near a MetroLink station on August 21, 2018.

LeFebvre was a long-time spokesman for the St. Louis County Department of Public Health and an avid user of public transportation.

Investigators say two men were involved in a dispute at a south St. Louis Chipotle restaurant. The argument continued onto the bridge that services MetroLink train and MetroBus stops near Grand and Scott. One of the men opened fire, hitting the other man in the face. LeFebvre, who was not in close range, was hit in the chest and killed.
