On April 20, 2021, 32-year-old Christopher Bolden called and texted his ex-girlfriend over 100 times before driving to her house in St. Louis County, KMOV reported.

Once at the residence, Bolden shot into a vehicle, killing Antonio Green, who was dating Bolden’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of two of his children, police said.

The suspect's former girlfriend was sitting in the front of the vehicle when Green was fatally shot in the backseat.
