Authorities have arrested and charged a man after a shooting that left a woman dead in a store's parking lot Wednesday morning in Jennings.
Police say, just before 11 a.m., 32-year-old, Loreal Goode was found suffering from a gunshot wound in the parking lot of the Family Dollar located in the 6400 block of West Florissant. Authorities pronounced the woman dead at the scene.
According to police, 42-year-old Brian Clay shot Goode in the head with a .38 revolver and took her cell phone, bank card and vehicle after Goode refused to drive Clay to the pawn shop. Police say Goode also refused to give Clay $36 so he could get his TV from the pawnshop.
Loved ones say Clay was Goode's boyfriend and that her 14-year-old daughter witnessed the shooting.
Clay was convicted of robbery in the second-degree and assault in the second-degree in August of 1995 in St. Louis.
A friend of Goode says she was like a sister to him and that the two were supposed to meet soon.
"I was supposed to meet up with her and now that meeting's not ever going to take place," said Don Lyles.
Clay was taken into custody shortly after the shooting and has been charged with murder in the first-degree, armed criminal action, robbery in the first-degree and unlawful possession of a firearm.
St. Louis County PD is asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them at 636-529-8210.
