A St. Louis fire captain and a young female passenger were both shot multiple times and taken to the hospital.

According to court documents, while the victims were in their parked car on 7th Street in Soulard, the Hartman brothers approached the parked vehicle and shot multiple times into the vehicle.  Both victims were shot multiple times.

It is unclear if the Hartman brothers knew the victims.  Police say cell phone records, bank records and multiple surveillance videos were obtained that identify the Hartman brothers as the people responsible for the shooting.

Both men are being held in lieu of a $750,000 cash only bail.
