Authorities charge O'Fallon, Mo., man, 21, in death of 9 year old in Ferguson

An O'Fallon, Mo., man is facing six felony counts including murder in the second degree in last week's shooting in Ferguson that killed 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden and wounded her mother.

Police said Thursday De'Eris Brown, 21, confessed to shooting into Bolden’s home. Brown is being held on a $750,000 cash-only bond. Court records show Brown previously pleaded guilty to felony robbery.

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles said community members at vigils who urged the public to speak to the police helped move the investigation forward.

“That was absolutely an extremely important part of this investigation. The tips, the leads and the cooperation with the community (were) absolutely what made this investigation move so quickly,” Knowles said.
