St Louis man, Anthony Liston, murders two women: Kara Bell, Lisa Georgieff

A St. Louis man was charged with two counts of first-degree murder after he fatally shot two women in south St. Louis because “he had never felt welcome there.”

“I’ve been doing this a while and I can tell you that I’ve seen a lot of violence but not violence like this,” said North County Police Cooperative Ron Martin.

The women have been identified as Lisa Georgieff, 39, and Kara Ball, age 34.

Liston, 30, stole a Jeep Cherokee, drove to the 4100 block of Michigan, where he kicked in the door of the home on Thursday, then shot and killed Georgieff in the chest.

The man traveled to the home of Ball, shooting her in the head and groin, striking a man in the face with the end of his rifle.

Georgieff was pronounced dead at the scene. Ball was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

After this rampage, Liston to a parking lot in the 100 block of Cherokee where police said he attempted to enter two vehicles when Spire workers saw him and stopped him until police arrived.

During the interview, police said Liston admitted to shooting Georgieff and Kara because “he had never felt welcome there.”

Martin says officers were called to the North Central Community Health Center on Jennings Station Road for reports of a shooting.

“There’s our shooter. There’s the movement and if you watch the mirror there’s the rifle, the rifle’s out, the shots made now he’s going out,” said Martin, reviewing the surveillance video of Liston’s attack during the chaotic day.

Martin says the suspect in the parking lot then corners the victim’s car, gets out and tries to reload his rifle before firing additional shots.

A woman passing by noticed the suspect, then does a double-take and is then seen running for cover.

“She got out of there,” said Martin of what he saw in the video.

“After the woman runs out of the frame, if you look at the street behind the parking lot, you’ll notice the victim’s car going about 40 miles per hour in reverse and she’s flooring it in reverse and then here comes the shooter right after. My goodness.”

Martin says crimes like these are increasing not only in St. Louis but around the country.

He’s asking people to be vigilant and do whatever it takes to make it out of tough situations alive.

Liston was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, two counts of attempted robbery, one count of assault and one count of tampering with motor vehicle.

Police said no bond was set for Liston.

In 2018, police saw Liston running away and found him hiding behind a dumpster. He had a stolen handgun, charging documents say. Liston was sentenced to 120 days in jail after pleading guilty to a stealing charge.

In 2010, he received two years of probation for a charge of unlawful use of a weapon.
