ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - St. Louis Police are investigating the murder of a St. Louis College of Pharmacy student who was gunned down over the weekend in the 2700 block of Accomac Street, off Jefferson in South City

There’s word that the killing of 20-year-old Nicholas Kapusniak may have been over a parking space.

A parent at the apartment where the shooting took place tells KMOX that there were words spoken with some residents along the street Friday night about the twenty or so visitors to a STLCOP Mardi Gras party taking up parking spaces.

There was no indication Kapusniak himself had been in a dispute over parking.

Kapusniak was in the backyard with a group when a car drove down the alley and fired a volley of shots.

Kapusniak, of Waukesha, Wis., was hit in the left side of the back.  He was taken into the apartment where he was pronounced dead.

On the Monday after the shooting, the three remaining STLCOP students who rented the apartment were packing up to move.

St. Louis Police had no arrests to report.  The killing took place on the same block where city police have a substation.
