ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – An SUV riddled with bullet holes showed up at Barnes Jewish Hospital overnight. Two men inside the car were shot. One of them is dead.   The scene outside the emergency room was filled with police investigators and upset family members.

An SUV arrived at the ER with at least 10 bullet holes in it. Police say the car was shot up at Dr. Martin Luther King and Euclid in North St. Louis around 9:30 p.m. Monday.  Investigators say the SUV was going east on MLK when a black car pulled up alongside it at Euclid and opened fire.  Fifteen shell casings from a nine millimeter handgun were found at the scene.

Police say the SUV driver, a 26-year-old man, was shot three times in the back, arm and knee. But he was still able to drive to Barnes.  While he survived, a 25-year-old man who was with him in the front passenger seat was killed.

Police say he was shot in the temple and pronounced dead at the hospital. The two men were the only people in the SUV.  Police have no suspects and no description of the car where the shots came from, expect that it was black.

The condition of the driver is unknown at this time. No names have been released.
