The murder occurred Sunday at 12:30 a.m., in the 3800 block of Lee Avenue, according to Erica Van Ross, a spokesperson for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

The victim, identified as Carl Sharp, was sitting on his porch and eating when he was approached by two people who wanted him to give up his burger. Van Ross said the two people left, but one of them returned on a bicycle and shot Sharp three times. Sharp was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Monday, detectives were able to identify the suspected shooter and found him selling snow cones at the intersection of N. Grand Boulevard and Kossuth Avenue, Van Ross said. He was arrested without incident.
