O’FALLON, MO (KPLR) – O’Fallon police continued their investigation Wednesday morning into a deadly shooting that appears to be the result of a burglary at a home belonging to a key figure in a high-profile murder trial.

According to a police spokesperson, the department received a 911 call for a burglary in progress at a home on Little Brave Driver just after noon on Tuesday. Police received a second call on the way to the scene.

Investigators said a woman at the home told them a man she didn’t know confronted her in the driveway and then followed her into the house. That’s when the woman fired several shots, killing the man.

The woman is cooperating with investigators and has given a statement.

Property records show the home where this all happened is owned by Pamela and Mark Hupp. Pamela Hupp was a central figure in the Betsy Faria murder case.

At this point, police have not confirmed the identities of the shooter and the deceased man.

No arrests have been made and thus far no charges have been filed.
