ST. LOUIS — St. Louis police arrested a 44-year-old man in connection to the killing of a 19-year-old last month in north St. Louis' Fountain Park neighborhood.

Shaun Leachman, of Cool Valley, was shot about 5 p.m. Oct. 5 in the 700 block of North Euclid Avenue, police said.

He was found on the ground on North Euclid and was breathing, but not conscious, when police arrived. He died later at a hospital.

Police on Nov. 22 said they applied for warrants against the man arrested in the case, but St. Louis prosecutors did not file charges because of lack of witness cooperation. 

The Post-Dispatch is not naming the suspect as he has not been formally charged.
