Cherry, of the 5900 block of Drury in north St. Louis, was able to steer his PT Cruiser three blocks away from the Northwood's restaurant before crashing the vehicle. He died at the scene. Three other people inside Cherry's car were uninjured from gunfire but taken to the hospital for injuries sustained in the crash.

Northwoods police have asked the St. Louis County police department to assist in the investigation. No suspect or motive have been made public.
