JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) - Police say a deadly shooting in suburban St. Louis may be connected to a car break-in.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2n9yTp2 ) reports that a man in his 40s or 50s was killed early Tuesday in a subdivision in Jennings. Officers responding to a report of a disturbance or tampering with a vehicle found the man lying in the street.

St. Louis County Police Officer Benjamin Granda says the man had been shot twice in the upper body. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Granda says it’s possible the man was shot while trying to break into a car.

Another man who lived in the area was taken into custody. Police say he is cooperating with detectives.
