ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Two men were found dead overnight near downtown St. Louis. Now police are searching for suspects.

Investigators say both victims were men in their 20`s. Their names have not yet been released.

The shooting took place around 10:30p.m. near the intersection of 14th Street and O'Fallon. One of the victims was found in the street; the other was discovered inside a four door sedan that crashed into a concrete barrier. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. The car that one of the victims was found in was riddled with bullet holes. One resident in the area says he heard about 30 gunshots.
