MALDEN, MO (KFVS) -

The victim of a shooting in Malden on Saturday has died, according to Malden Police Chief Jarrett Bullock. 

Dustin Greer died Tuesday night from injuries sustained in a shooting that occurred early on Saturday morning.

The suspect, Floyd M. Young, was already facing assault and armed criminal action charges. Those charges have now been amended to first degree murder and felony armed criminal action. He is currently in the Dunklin County Jail.

Floyd M. Young voluntarily turned himself over to police at the Malden Police Department just before 4 p.m. on Saturday.

On Saturday July 18, shortly after 3 a.m., the Malden Police Department received a call of loud crash off the alley behind the 400 block of North Edwards.

Officers arrived within one minute of the time of call and found a man slumped over the steering wheel of a white Chevrolet SUV.

An officer noticed that the man was suffering from a gunshot wound.

Officers continued to investigate and made multiple contacts with area residents who described to the officers what they had observed.

Residents described hearing what sounded like multiple gun shots, then a loud collision or crash noise.

At this point of the investigation, information is being gathered by the Malden Police Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Dunklin County Sheriff’s Department.

The victim was taken to a Cape Girardeau hospital where he later died.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is encouraged to contact the Malden Police Department.
