Kyle Falker

A 15-year-old boy was shot and killed in a shooting in St. Louis' Carr Square neighborhood just north of Downtown. St. Louis police were called just after 1 p.m. Sunday to the Preservation Square apartments near the 1400 block of North 14th Street. The victim, Kyle Faulkner, was found dead and had several gunshot wounds, police said. Kyle lived in the 700 block of Biddle Place. Relatives said he was with friends when he was shot. Police Lt. Scott Aubuchon said investigators believe the boy was "probably" shot with a rifle. The shooting took place right near a tower of police cameras inside the complex. Annette Wraggs, Kyle's paternal grandmother, said in a wavering voice that her grandson was "still a baby." "They need to cool this stuff down," she said, using an expletive. "Too many kids are getting killed." "He was a good boy, a good person," Kyle's aunt Sherron Coffee said. "It's a shock to me (that) my nephew is dead ... I'm going to miss him so much."
