ST. LOUIS- Police found nobody home Tuesday evening at a house in the Hill neighborhood after a 6 1/2-hour siege complete with snipers, a hostage response team, a negotiator and several rounds of tear-gas fire.

Police were seeking a man wanted for questioning in a killing early Monday in a rural area of Madison County north of Edwardsville.

The victim, Christopher L. Olson, 35, a roofer from Portage des Sioux, was shot to death, probably about 4 a.m. Monday, officials said. His body was discovered by a passing motorist about 6 a.m.
