EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) – Authorities in East St. Louis are investigating the death of a Washington Park man who was gunned down after playing basketball at a city park.
St. Clair County Coroner Rick Stone says 20-year-old Marcquez Fultz was shot multiple times in the head and chest Monday night and pronounced dead at the scene.
Police Chief Michael Floore says Fultz and a couple of his cousins were sitting around talking after the game when someone came out of a wooded area nearby and began shooting.
He says Fultz is the 13th homicide victim in East St. Louis this year.
