Shortly before the shooting, Glover and others were involved in an argument at a neighborhood convenience store, according to police. The suspects then trailed Glover in a Pontiac Grand Prix and opened fire with an assault rifle as he stood on the porch on Genevieve Street.

The Post-Dispatch reports that the mother was inside the home when she was struck numerous times in the abdomen. She was in serious but stable condition at a hospital. Her five-year-old daughter was hit in the hand and grazed on the chest and is expected to recover.
