Two North County men robbed and shot a Dellwood resident during a drug deal Dec. 23, St. Louis County Police said.

Police said that Kai Bowers, 17, of the 4300 block of Vandals Drive south of Black Jack, arranged on Facebook to meet the victim to sell him drugs. Bowers went to the home in the 1600 block of Chesley drive in Dellwood with Dion Price, 17, of the 5200 block of Abington Drive in Black Jack.

When Bowers and Price arrived at the home, Price pulled out a handgun and asked for the money. When the victim refused, Price shot him in the leg, according to the St. Louis County Police report.

The victim then gave Bowers and Price his money and cell phone, police said. Officers found and arrested both defendants at Bowers’ home. The victim identified both men in a photo lineup.

I don't think the guy that got shot is a victim. You commit a crime, you take a risk that something might happen. A victim is someone who is injured at no fault if their own!
