Crime-Shooting

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP)- Police say a former Missouri man was killed in a weekend shooting in East St. Louis, just months after he moved there.

Police Chief Michael Floore says 26-year-old Adrian Perry was found wounded Friday night on an East St. Louis street. Perry later died at a hospital.

There’s no immediate word on any charges or arrests.

Floore tells the Belleville News-Democrat that Perry moved to East St. Louis from St. Louis about five months ago.

Illinois State Police are assisting in the investigation.
