Homicides: Romell Clemons, 20, Shot; Woman in Driveway Stabbed in Buttocks (No. 2 & 3)

Romell Clemons
Wednesday kept homicide detectives busy with two murders -- a stabbing and a shooting -- in twelve hours.

St. Louis police are investigating the stabbing death of an unknown woman found in the middle of the day lying in the driveway of an apartment building.

The woman suffered puncture wounds to the buttocks and torso, though police are awaiting autopsy results to announce what weapon was used in the stabbing.

Earlier on Wednesday, police also responded to the shooting death of Romell Clemons, who just turned twenty last month, in the city's Gate District.

Just after midnight, four unknown black men shot Clemons in the abdomen, clavicle and arm while outside his home before fleeing in a silver, four-door vehicle. Police took Clemons, unconscious, to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Family will hold funeral arrangements for Clemons, known to friends as "Noodles," on Saturday, January 18, at A.L. Beal Mortuary.
