NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KPLR)-  A deadly bathroom shooting inside a popular convenience store has customers shaking their heads in disbelief.

“Come on, when is the madness going to stop?” asked Alenzo Sanders.  He stood outside the Quick Trip on New Halls Ferry Road shortly after a 27-year-old victim was shot and killed.

“It’s a sad state of affairs for our society,” said another customer.  “I don’t know where we’re headed.”

St. Louis County Police received a call to respond at approximately 10 a.m. Sunday.  A statement released by the department indicated the victim entered the QT and went directly to the bathroom.  Approximately one minute later, shots were fired.  Police say the wounded victim ran out of the bathroom, made his way out of the store and collapsed on the QT parking lot.  He was taken to an area hospital where he died.

Police say it is too soon to comment on a suspect, suspects or a motive.  The St. Louis County Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons Bureau is handling the investigation.
