ST. CHARLES, MO (KPLR) – St. Charles City Police released surveillance video Saturday of a January 26 shooting at a family oriented restaurant on Veteran's Memorial Parkway. The video clearly shows a man jump from a wall next to a table booth and extend his arm while gripping a hand gun.
The incident happened about 8:25 pm at the Chuck E. Cheese restaurant. A man was shot while in the restaurant foyer. As he left the building, he was shot again on the parking lot, but survived.
Saturday detectives identified two persons of interest in the video and released their pictures. Police want to talk to 24-year old Donesha Johnson and 23-year old Deven Strauther, both of St. Louis, about the shooting. Johnson and Strauther arrived at the restaurant with a third person. That individual was not identified by police.
Saturday night Strauther was being held in the St. Louis City Justice Center in connection with an unrelated incident.
Earlier in the week, the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney issued an attempted assault felony charge against 20-year old Aesian Clay. She is being held on a $50,000 cash only bond.
A restaurant employee told News 11 the adults involved in the incident were attending a child's birthday party. They had been arguing. Someone else arrived bringing a gun and that's when the shooting took place.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the St. Charles City Police at 636-949-3309 or the St. Charles Crime Stoppers at 636-949-3333.
