“Justice was so loving and affectionate and caring,” John Johnson, Justice’s father, said. “He was extremely funny. He made everybody laugh. He was really thoughtful toward others.”

Justice Johnson, KHS senior, was shot and killed on Jan. 14 around 7:15 p.m. at the McDonald’s in the 10400 block of Page Avenue in Overland. In Justice’s case, 2017 KHS graduate, Joseph R. Jordan III, was charged with tampering with evidence Jan. 17. According to Ellisville Chief of Police Steven Lewis court documents indicate the shooter was inside a Jeep Commander. Police found the Jeep in an alley the day following the shooting, and the vehicle was registered to Jordan. Police say a witness claimed to have seen Jordan wiping down the Jeep. In a press release, the Major Case Squad said witnesses saw Tabyus Mace, former KHS student, inside the Jeep following Justice’s murder. Police are currently looking for Mace as a person of interest and believe he is in the Kirkwood area.

“Tabyus Mace needs to be turned into the police within the community,” John said. “I thank the entire Kirkwood School District. I thank them for loving and supporting my son. The teachers, the basketball team, the administration, I think it’s important that they know that I am thankful for them.”

If you have any information about Mace’s location contact the Overland Police Department at 314-428-1212 or Crimestoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS (8477).

    My condolences to Justice’s family.

    Tabyus,
    I know you are following this story. My Son was set up and murdered in 2017. No matter what transpired between you and Justice that led up to the ultimate decision and taking his life his parents didn’t do anything to you and now they’re the victims while Justice rest in peace and you are now on the Run. You cannot keep running, you cannot live like that & you have to turn yourself in at some point because you are endangering anyone and everyone who tries to help you right now. We all make mistakes & I pray you turn yourself in and do what’s right.
