Charges have been filed against 22-year-old Christopher Brown of the 3600 block of Gasconade Street in connection with a shooting last week that took place near the Broadway Oyster Bar in Soulard.

On June 20 at around 2 a.m., trumpet player Adam Hucke was at the bar, where he performed with Big Mike Aguirre & the Blu-City All Stars, when he was struck in the shoulder by a stray bullet. The injury was not life-threatening, and Hucke was released from the hospital the same night.

Brown, the alleged shooter, is believed to have been walking across the White Castle parking lot adjacent to the bar where several shots were fired at another man. Brown was allegedly seen getting in his car and fleeing the scene immediately after the incident.

He was picked up by police on Monday night after warrants were issued for his arrest, and is currently being held on a $100,000 bond. He is charged with shooting from a motor vehicle, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon -- all felonies.

No other arrests have been made in relation to the case. The investigation is ongoing.

Have any of you assholes ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? A white musician that everyone knows gets shot and then a black male is suspect, gets a horrible mugshot taken and everyone thinks he did it. If he did it, he deserves to go down for it. But none of you people are a part of the investigation, including the RFT, so your opinion is informed only by the fact that this man is a suspect. Notice, that the RFT calls Brown, "the shooter" even when they say later on that the "investigation is on-going". It doesn't take a genius to realise that these two phrases are contradictory. This is shitty, CNN-type, sensationalist reporting and the RFT should be ashamed that they're a part of this vigilantism.

Couple more years and Downtown will be completely unlivable (for white folk), and north county, and much of south city.  That picture of the guy with the B tatted on his neck, that is why there is white flight.  When St Louis becomes Detroit the white people will get the blame but that guy at the top of the screen, he is the reason. Thanks Tyrone!

Pretty sure if he had legal access to guns and shooting ranges, this never would've happened. And wow, what's with certain St. Louis area people always wanting to see a black man hanging from a rope?
