ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis man has been charged in the death of an alleged burglary accomplice who was shot by a homeowner.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1lS7rsy ) that 19-year-old Jordan Lamar Holmes is charged with armed criminal action, burglary and second-degree murder. He’s also charged with four counts of felony stealing in a string of shoplifting cases, including one in which he allegedly knocked over an 87-year-old nun in a mall.

Police say Holmes and 19-year-old Tramell Day tried to break into a Florissant home around 10 a.m. Monday. The homeowner grabbed his gun and killed Day in a shootout.

Police say Holmes fled the scene, but he was arrested late Tuesday.

Holmes is being held on a $750,000 cash-only bail for the home burglary case and $75,000 cash-only bail in the stealing case.
