Approximately two hours later, the victims were at a gas station along East Grand Avenue in the Near North Riverfront. Police claim Phillips approached her ex-boyfriend, who was sitting in his car, and pointed a gun at him. The ex drove away but Phillips shot at his vehicle again, shattering the back window and striking the rear of the car.

Police later detained Phillips and located what they believed to be the weapon used in both incidents in the center console.

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office charged Phillips with two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of first-degree domestic assault, four counts of armed criminal action, and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon. Phillips remains jailed without bond for the time being. She’s due in court later this week.
