Victor Pierce, St. Louis County Homicide No. 6; Shot During Alleged Drug Deal


Nineteen-year-old Victor Pierce was in a drug deal Saturday night, according to St. Louis County Police, when he and another man got into an argument that led to both of them drawing guns.

Unfortunately for Pierce, the other man was a better shot -- killing Pierce around 9:40 p.m. as they sat in a car parked in the 9800 block of Dennis Drive.
