Shooting at same location 2 days in a row
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – St. Louis Metropolitan Police rushed to a downtown intersection after shots rang out at the same scene for the second night in a row.
It is not yet clear if the two crimes are related.
Police got the call for help just after 1:45 a.m. Friday. The victims said someone shot at their car on Washington Avenue near 20th Street. But, the victims were able to drive about a half mile to Central Patrol Division for help. That police station is on Jefferson Avenue and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive. Detectives were in the parking lot, combing the victims’ Pontiac for evidence.
Police said there were no injuries and no suspects.
About 24 hours before, four men reported someone fired on their car at the exact same location. The 23-year-old driver went to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his back. One of his passengers was grazed on his buttock. The other two passengers were not injured.
Police said the victims did not see their shooter, but saw a newer model silver Pontiac Grand Prix drive away.
The Downtown area was not the only one to see gun violence overnight. St. Louis Police say a 20-year-old man went to the hospital after being shot in the arm in Fairgrounds Park in north St. Louis. That was just before 3:00a.m. Friday. No suspects have been found in that shooting.
