Details are scant on St. Louis' latest homicide.

Last evening at around 6:20 pm, officers fielded a call about a "person down" in the Vandeventer neighborhood.

That, sadly, turned out to be accurate.

Officers arrived at the 4300 block of East Fairfax Court to find the body of Deondre Elem.

Elem was a 29-year-old black male from the 14400 block of Bantry Lane in St. Louis County (near Clayton Road and 141).

He'd been shot in the head, and was pronounced dead on the scene.

The investigation continues, police say.
