ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) -  A young man is fighting for his life after being shot in the head.  The gunman is still on the loose.  Family and friends say the victim is terrified.  They arrived on the scene just after the shooting and may have even given him first aid.

St. Louis police got the call around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday after the victim argued with another man in front of a home at Eiler Street and Virginia Avenue. That's when witnesses say the man was shot in the head.

Someone may have carried him inside the home before police arrived.  The man was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Investigators have a suspect in mind, but that suspect is not in custody.
