ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A South St. Louis County woman clings to life after being shot by a man early Tuesday morning. County police spokesman Officer Brian Schellman says a suspect has been arrested. He is identified as 20-year-old Benjamin Wilkinson. The identity of the victim, a 25-year-old woman, has not been released.

“We don’t have a motive in this case yet and, obviously, detectives are working to find that,” says Schellman.

Wilkinson is charged with First Degree Assault and armed criminal action. He is jailed on a $250,000 cash only bond.
