ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – A 30-year-old female says someone fired shots at her Monday morning, after she heard banging outside her home on the 2800 block of Mt. Pleasant.

The victim looked out a window, noting a black male with dread locks, in a white t-shirt and black shorts, was attempting to steal a neighbor’s car.  She banged on the window to frighten off thief, but the man turned toward the window and fired two shots.

One of the bullets barley missed her.

The suspect fled the scene in a car with three or four other subjects.
