Boy, 14, Becomes City's 40th Homicide Victim in Friday Robbery

Michael Goulbourne, an eighth grader at Normandy Middle School, became the city's 40th murder victim Friday night when thieves held up a food stand in north St. Louis.

Goulbourne was working at the Mi Hungry barbecue stand in the 1200 block of N. Kingshighway Friday around 8 p.m. when a blue, late-1980s or early-1990s Pontiac pulled up and four men exited the car to demand money.
