St. Louis County prosecutors charged a St. Louis man with murder in the death of 13-year-old Clifford Swan III.
Jabari Lowery, 18, faces charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action. Authorities say Lowery shot Swan on Thursday as he and two other people walked through an apartment complex on Oak Parkway Lane in north St. Louis County.
Emergency personnel rushed Swan to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after.
"I just feel like my son was stolen from me,” said Clifford Swan Sr., the boy's father. “He was nothing but a baby."
