A St. Louis man is charged in the Sunday afternoon carjacking in rural Edwardsville. The victim met a suspect to negotiate a car sale, or so he thought. While on the test drive the suspect pulled a gun on the victim, the gun discharged, and police say Calvin Fletcher Jr. sped away at a high rate of speed into St. Louis.
Madison County Sheriff's Department Captain Mike Dixon tells The Big Z the car has been recovered.
