The other victim survived. Late last month Mantia Johnson Jr., 34, of Granite City, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, aggravated discharge of a firearm, and unlawful possession of weapons by a felon. Both Johnson and Leonard are in custody at the Madison County jail.
