Suspect in Motomart killing dies


St. Louis, MO – A man suspected of killing a convenience store clerk in Pacific has died.

Police say Justin Nelson died Tuesday night at a hospital after shooting himself Monday night during a stand-off with police at an apartment building where he lived in Valley Park.

Police say they're pretty sure Nelson, 25, shot and killed Kevin Henderson, 42, last week at a MotoMart. They also believe the gun used to kill Henderson was the same one Nelson used to shoot himself.

A tipster reported that she recognized Nelson from the surveillance video released last week.
