One man died after a shooting early Thursday morning in the Soulard neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. Residents of a nearby loft building woke to find their street covered in police officers and paramedics.
This all happened right next door to the Soulard Market Lofts. A man was shot in the chest just in front of Franco Restaurant. St. Louis Metropolitan Police got the call for help at 2:40 Thursday morning.
Shea Boyle said he was sleep, but heard a commotion. Boyle woke up and then heard six to eight shots. When he looked out of his window, he saw a man lying on the sidewalk.
"Yeah it's kind of a bummer,' Boyle said. 'Soulard is a nice town, a nice neighborhood. We definitely don't need this in Soulard. The people here are permanent residents, and they don't want to see this here at all."
The victim is a white male in his 30's. Paramedics rushed him to a local hospital. But, doctors there pronounced him dead. St. Louis city police did not give a motive and did not have a suspect.
