East St. Louis man accused of hijacking UPS truck
EAST ST. LOUIS — An East St. Louis man is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused of hijacking a UPS truck and later shooting a 15-year-old girl.
St. Clair County prosecutors charged 20-year-old Anthony Moore with attempted murder, aggravated vehicular hijacking, armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping.
Illinois State Police allege that a masked man with a gun forced a UPS driver making deliveries on Dec. 17 to drive to two locations where some of the parcels were unloaded. The UPS driver later fled.
Two days later, authorities say the girl was shot in the head and chest and left in a Cahokia ditch. There's no word on her condition Wednesday.
Moore couldn't be reached for comment, and online court records don't show whether he has an attorney.
