Man charged with murder in fatal 'road rage' shooting in St. Clair County


BELLEVILLE — A Granite City man is charged with murder after authorities say he killed a man Sunday in a "road rage" shooting in Sauget. 

Charles B. Shaw, 42, is accused of shooting and killing Terrill E. Vance, 46, of Florissant, according to a Tuesday announcement from the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis. 

Police were called just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday to a gas station at 3120 Mississippi Avenue, where they found Vance dead in the parking lot. He had been shot multiple times, authorities say. 

The shooting happened after a road rage incident that "escalated unnecessarily to a deadly altercation in the parking lot of the Motomart," according to the Major Case Squad.
