A 15-year-old Floris­sant, Mo., boy was shot and killed in Ca­hokia last month and no one has been charged yet.

Ca­hokia po­lice say the case has been sent to the St. Clair County State’s At­tor­ney’s Of­fice for re­view. St. Clair County State’s At­tor­ney Bren­dan Kelly could not be reached for com­ment.

Dar­ris Wil­liams was shot on Oct. 26. Po­lice re­ceived a call at 11:30 p.m. to in­ves­ti­gate a re­port of some­one be­ing shot at a home in the 200 block of Sauget Av­enue in Ca­hokia.

“The caller said some­one had been shot at a res­i­dence in the 200 block of Sauget. They didn’t know who the vic­tim was. The 15-year-old was taken to Touchette Re­gional Hos­pi­tal, where he was pro­nounced dead by an emer­gency room doc­tor,” St. Clair County Coro­ner Calvin Dye Sr. said.
