Man accused in December Paris Road gas station shooting arrested in St. Louis


A man who was charged in relation to a December shooting at a gas station on Paris Road in Columbia has been arrested in St. Louis, the Columbia Police Department tweeted on Friday.

Terrance A. Johnson Jr., 27, is charged with first-degree assault, armed-criminal action and shooting a gun at a motor vehicle/person. He is not listed on the Boone County Jail's inmate roster. He is also not listed on an inmate roster for St. Louis-area law enforcement agencies, according to online records.

CPD wrote that Johnson was arrested at 8:45 a.m. Thursday by St. Louis Metropolitan Police and the U.S. Marshals. A court date for Johnson was not listed yet.

Another person, Jasmine B. Bell, 26, was charged with first-degree assault in relation to the incident. Bell was held at the Boone County Jail on a $50,000 bond. She posted bond on Jan. 3. A motion for a change of judge was filed Friday.

Bell has hearings scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 23, and 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21.

A probable cause statement filed in Bell's case names the victim with the initials C.W. The statement, relying on surveillance video, says C.W. was in a red car and Johnson was in a white SUV. The two got into an argument after the red car backed up to pull beside the SUV, the statement says.

C.W. got out and back into the car, which drove a short distance away, the statement says. Johnson then got out of the SUV with a rifle and shot several times at the red car, according to the statement

Police determined Bell was with Johnson after seeing her get out of the vehicle on surveillance video at Johnson's apartment, according to the statement.
