St. Louis man charged with firing at car with 3 kids inside

Mytavis Alexander

FLORISSANT, Mo. – A St. Louis man has been charged with firing into a vehicle with his 3-year-old son and two other children inside.

Twenty-five-year-old Mytavis Alexander, of St. Louis, was charged Wednesday with three counts of first-degree child endangerment and 11 other felonies. He is jailed without bond. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Charging documents say Alexander accused his child’s mother of stealing from him Tuesday night while they were exchanging custody of the 3-year-old outside a suburban McDonald’s restaurant shortly after ending their relationship. The mother allowed him to search her car for his belongings, but he found nothing.

The documents say that as she drove away, he fired multiple rounds, striking the vehicle. Alexander’s cousin and her two children also were inside. There were no reports of injuries.
