ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - A man was shot and wounded Friday afternoon on the platform of the North Hanley Metrolink station in the 4300 block of north Hanley. The light rail stop is near the Express Scripts campus.

According to Sgt. Brian Schellman, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, the victim was waiting for the train when two groups started arguing. A man from one of the groups pulled a handgun and fired several shots towards the other group. The 39-year-old victim, who was not affiliated with either group, ended up shot in the leg. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening wounds.

All the members of the two groups, including the shooter, fled the scene and police are still looking for them. Investigators released surveillance video from a nearby apartment complex of two persons of interest. Anyone with information on the identity of either man seen in this video is asked to contact St. Louis County police.
