ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. - A man who was shot during a suspected road rage incident while driving with his children in south St. Louis County on Monday is expected to recover from his injuries. Two suspects are in police custody.
According to a county police spokesperson, a man in his 30s was shot by a suspect traveling in another car. The victim's children—ages 11, 9, 5, and 3—were with him at the time of the shooting. The children were unharmed.
The victim was taken to the hospital.
The shooting occurred in the 6200 block of S. Lindbergh Boulevard between Tesson Ferry and Interstate 55 just after 3 p.m.
Around the same time, police were responding to the shooting call, other officers pulled over a red Mitsubishi on Lindbergh near Rusty Road after police said that car illegally used the shoulder to pass traffic. Further investigation led officers to believe the Mitsubishi was also the suspect car in the shooting incident.
Two men in that car were taken into custody. There's been no word on any charges filed in this case.
Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact the St. Louis County Police Department's Affton precinct at 314-638-5550 or CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS (8477).
