Bar shooting victim had 3 teens, baby who recently died

Posted: Updated:

FLORISSANT, Mo. (AP) - A man killed in a shooting at a suburban St. Louis sports bar was the father of three teenagers and a premature infant who recently died.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 43-year-old Scott Beary, of Winchester, died in the Wednesday afternoon shooting at Show-Me's Sports Bar & Grill. Florissant Police Chief Timothy Lowery says the shooter was disarmed and detained by other patrons until police arrived.

Witness Carl Leavy says the shooting happened after an argument about a dog's weight boiled over and another man pulled a gun. Beary's brother, Don Beary, lamented the killing, asking "When in this country are we going to stop with the violence?"

Scott Beary was the father of a 16-, 15- and 13-year-old. The funeral for his 11-day-old daughter was Feb. 2.
