A St. Louis man convicted in the shooting of a business college administrator is scheduled to be sentenced Friday. Thirty-five-year-old Sean Johnson was found guilty in April of first-degree assault and armed criminal action in the shooting at Stevens Institute of Business & Arts in downtown St. Louis. Financial aid director Greg Elsenrath survived the attack, which prompted a school lockdown. Johnson testified at trial that he was responsible for the shooting. He told a city jury that he was upset because his student loans were running out and he was several credits short of graduating. He also said he had stopped taking medication for mental health problems. Johnson has previous convictions for drug trafficking and attacking a cab driver in St. Louis County with a box cutter.
