St. Louis Police said Monday they're investigating the shooting death of a local volleyball star as a "probable attempted robbery."
"We have no evidence that the victim and suspect knew each other," police spokesman David M. Marzullo said in a statement.
Police said Wheaton native Megan Boken, 23, was shot and killed Saturday in her car while stopped at an intersection in St. Louis. She was shot in the neck and chest and later pronounced dead at Barnes Jewish Hospital.
Police on Monday released more information about the suspect, describing him as a black male with a medium complexion standing 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 with short hair and wearing grey charcoal shirt, khaki pants and white tennis shoes.
Police ask anyone with information about the suspect or homicide to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
Boken was an All-State volleyball player at Wheaton St. Francis High School and a member of the Spartans' 2004 and 2006 state championship teams. She reportedly was in town for a Billikens volleyball reunion game at the University.
"My heart and prayers go out to one of my favorite families ever The Boken's," May-Treanor wrote. "I am sorry for your loss. Please know that I am thinking of you all during this difficult time. Megan may you rest in peace. Love you all!"
