Charges were issued after officers from the St. Louis County Police Department’s Fenton Precinct responded to a robbery in progress at the Check’N Go store located at 676 Gravois Road. When officers arrived on scene, the two male suspects were exiting the store. Quarles was quickly taken into custody without incident. While attempting to arrest a second suspect, identified as Claudell Webb Jr., 23 years of age, of the 200 block of Meadow Crest, St. Louis, MO 63135, a short struggle ensued between officers and suspect Webb Jr. During this struggle, Webb Jr., produced a handgun. Fearing for their lives and the safety of the public, one of the officers shot the suspect. Webb Jr. was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, where he died.
