Carlyle Police Seek Suspect In Shooting of Centralia Man

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

The Carlyle Police Department is asking for assistance in locating an 18-year-old Teutopolis man wanted for questioning in connection with the shooting of a Centralia man last Wednesday in Carlyle.  

Devin Falbe has already had a warrant with bond set at $50,000 issued for his arrest charging unlawful possession of methamphetamine in connection with the case.   The man who was shot, Marcus Currie, reportedly had four gunshot wounds to the head.

Police say they received information the day after the shooting that the shots were fired following a verbal altercation on the NAPA Parking lot.  Currie is believed to have met Falbe on the lot to sell him some marijuana.   Police became aware of the shooting after Currie showed up at the CC Food Mart claiming to have been shot.  

Responding officers said Currie had what looked like four pellet holes in his forehead.  Currie was reportedly uncooperative and would not provide information on who he was with or where the shooting occurred. 

Currie was transported by MedStar ambulance to St. Joseph's Hospital in Breese.  He was then airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital where he was released a couple hours later.  

Currie has since been arrested for assault in connection with the incident and has been released on bond.  He has not yet appeared in court.  

The incident remains under investigation.  No details are being released on what type of gun may have been involved or what led to the possession of meth charge against Falbe. 

Anyone with information on Falbe's whereabouts are asked to contact the Carlyle Police Department or your local police department.
