St. Louis police are investigating the death of a former St. Louis city prosecutor who was shot at her home.

Jessa Schauman died Thursday, a day after police were called to a home she shared with a former St. Louis police officer. She had been shot in the head. Police say that the initial call indicated a suicide attempt, but a preliminary investigation led officers to classify the death as suspicious.
