  • Caion Greene was killed in St. Louis on March 7th.

St. Louis police said witnesses saw seventeen-year-old Darryl Williams fire multiple shots into a car on March 7, killing nine-year-old Caion Greene.

Williams was arrested Wednesday and the St. Louis Attorney’s Office filed charges today. He faces ten criminal offenses, including first degree murder and three first degree attacks. The teenager is charged as an adult.

According to a likely cause, a detective writes that Williams approached the car Caion was in and opened fire before running away. Caion’s parents and his seven-month-old brother were also in the car. Only the nine-year-old was shot, a single bullet in the chest. His parents drove him to Barnes-Jewish Hospital, but it was too late.
