Delrico Jones: St. Louis Homicide No. 46; Shot In Robbery That Also Injures Gunman
Here's where it gets a bit strange: A short time later, another man was dropped off at a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the gut.
He told authorities he'd been shot in the 5500 block of Wabada in north city. However, police believe he is actually one of the suspects in the robbery plot on Jones and was apparently shot by his partner during the melee that led to Jones' death.
Police describe that suspect as a 35-year-old black male who remains hospitalized in critical condition. His partner -- a 26-year-old black male who allegedly killed Jones and injured his criminal accomplice -- is now in police custody.
