FENTON, Mo. (KMOX) – The man shot and killed Wednesday night in Fenton was a burglar who was shot by one of his accomplices, according to investigators.

Major Case Squad detectives say 26-year-old Ramone Thomas was one of six people who were burglarizing a mobile home in the 700 block of Chancellor Lane about 4 a.m.

They say that while of them were ransacking the home, the homeowner arrived. As the suspects attempted to run away, one of them fired a shot at the homeowner but hit Thomas.

Two suspects ran away, but were caught a short time later. Another suspect was found in the area at about 2:40 p.m. Two female suspects fled in a vehicle. One of them has been arrested. The other remains at large.

So far, three suspects have been charged. Raymond Seay of Florissant, and Courtney Brown and Paris-John Devine of St. Louis are charged with second-degree murder and second-degree burglary.

More charges are expected to be filed soon.
