Police Continue Investigation Into Shooting Death of St. Louis Pharmacy Student
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) - It’s been almost two weeks since a drive-by shooting took the life of a St. Louis College of Pharmacy student.
The March 1st shooting in the 2700 block of Accomac took the life of 20-year-old Nicholas Kapusniak of Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Kapusniak was standing with a group of people at a backyard party when a car cruising down the alley opened fire and shot him in the back.
St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says somebody must know something that could help investigators.
“Anybody that knows anything that happened in that neighborhood related to the fraternity house that’s there, the individuals, or anybody that said anything about being in the neighborhood – those are the types of leads we’re looking for,” Dotson explains. “Anybody that can give us context to what happened that night, may have seen a car, may have known someone that had words with someone in the neighborhood that night.”
Did the incident really have to do with a parking space? Dotson says investigators have yet to confirm reports that the shooting was the result of an earlier argument someone at the same party had over a parking spot.
“That’s been widely publicized in the media from a variety of sources,” Dotson says. “We’re looking for individuals that may have details or specifics about that, instead of anecdotally being able to say ‘words were exchanged.’”
A $10,000 reward is being offered for information that could help solve the case.
