Man found dead of self-inflicted gunshot was suspect in shooting

A Richmond Heights resident reported there was an apparent crime scene on Woodland Drive between Dale and I-64/40 Tuesday morning. “I just drove by and there was a ton of crime scene tape up, police cars and at least five black unmarked cars. I saw some crime scene unit person taking pictures of the inside of a van.”

Inside the vehicle was Michael Hutson, 51, of Imperial,  dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hutson was a police ‘person of interest’ in the shooting of Kathleen, Hutson, 50, of St. Louis, at the Ladue Schnucks on Lindbergh Boulevard earlier in the day, KMOV has reported. Hutson was listed in critical condition following surgery on Tuesday.

According to officials, the man found dead in Richmond Heights and the woman shot at Schnucks were married. There was a restraining order.
