OVERLAND, Mo – A man was shot and killed Monday evening near a fast food restaurant in Overland.

The shooting took place right along the busy street of Page Blvd near the McDonald’s Restaurant at Page and Ashby.

Police responded to the area around 7:15 p.m., and found the victim, identified as 18-year-old Justice Johnson, had been shot.  Johnson was taken to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Overland police requested the assistance of the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis.

Investigators said they’re looking to talk to a witness who allegedly ran up to a car after the shooting, knocked on the window, and asked the driver to call 911. That witness then left the scene.

Authorities were checking surveillance video from nearby businesses and talking with other witnesses who say they heard an altercation before gunfire erupted.

Further details were not immediately available.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the Overland Police Department at 314-428-1212 or CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.
