Anthony Fields

The January death of a St. Louis man who was robbed at gunpoint in September is now being investigated as a homicide. Officers said Anthony Fields, 51, died Jan. 16 in a hospital, and the medical examiner notified them in mid-April that his death was ruled a homicide as a result of the injuries he suffered during the robbery. Officers said they responded to a call Sept. 17 around 10 p.m., and found Fields suffering from multiple injuries. He told police he was in the area of Lee and Newstead avenues when a car pulled up alongside him and three men demanded money from him while one of them pointed a handgun in his direction. He said he and one of the men began fighting. Then the other two men got involved, eventually taking Field's money and driving off. Fields was taken to the hospital. In January, he died from complications that resulted from his injuries, the medical examiner ruled.
