Jarell M. Anderson, 23, was arrested by the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis and has been charged with murder (with intent to kill or injure). The arrest took place on Friday afternoon in St. Louis County.

The shooting occurred on Tuesday, just before 5:30 a.m., following an altercation between two individuals at the Jackie Joyner-Kersee station.
