  • These are composites of the man who fatally shot Phebe and Mosary Stallings Monday in U. City
Yesterday at 2:45 pm, University City Police responded to the business park at Sutter Avenue and Barmer Industrial Drive to find a mother and son all shot up.

Both the mother -- Phebe Stallings, 54 -- and her son, 23-year-old Mosary Stallings, were taken to the hospital but died of their injuries.

Residents of the 6500 block of Bartmer, the mother-son pair had just bought some items at a convenience store when witnesses say a man ambushed them (according to news reports).

On the right are the composite sketches of the suspect.

The man is described by U. City police only as a black male with a medium complexion, wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

It's unclear whether the suspect knew the victim, but there was a "substantial amount of what appeared to be narcotics" at the scene.
