ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Police confirm the body found Saturday in north St. Louis was that of a teen reported missing one day earlier.

Officers say 16-year-old Chauncey Brown died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Another 16-year-old male is in custody, and police say the car allegedly used in the “drive-by” shooting has been recovered.

Chauncey Brown and two other males were last seen leaving a party at Club 187, early Friday.

Investigators say the three apparently were confronted with a gun and scattered, before a car tried to run them down and shots were fired.
