ST. CHARLES, Mo. — One man is in custody and another hospitalized after a dispute over a handicapped parking spot at a Missouri Target store turned violent.
The shooting happened around noon Tuesday in St. Charles. Police say a 65-year-old man shot a 21-year-old Amazon delivery driver who had parked in the handicapped spot, following an argument between the two men.
The driver, who worked for a third-party service provider, was shot once in the back. His condition wasn’t immediately available. Amazon described what happened as “terrible” and said in a written statement that it would “work with law enforcement and the delivery service partner as they investigate.”
Police say the weapon used in the shooting has been recovered.
