Language from the Probable Cause Statement: "The defendant and the victim, C.S., had been in a romantic relationship and shared a child in common.  On the morning of January 15, 2015 around 8 a.m., C.S. was driving her car with her current boyfriend in the front passenger seat.  The defendant began following C.S. in his Suburban as they traveled through traffic.  The defendant was gesturing for C.S. to pull over.  When C.S. failed to pull over for the defendant, the defendant continued to follow her until they reached the stoplight at Chouteau and Tucker.  The defendant rolled down his window and exchanged words with C.S.  The defendant then fired several shots at C.S. from the defendant’s Suburban, striking her in her shoulder and chest.  C.S. died as a result of the gunshot wounds.  C.S.’s boyfriend was also struck in the hands as a result of the defendant firing into the victim’s car.  As of today’s date, C.S.’s boyfriend was undergoing surgery to repair the wounds to his hands.
