ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - St. Louis Police are asking for your help to solve a shooting that broke out at Delmar and Skinker at about 7:00pm Sunday.   Just before the shooting, it looked like a normal scene on Delmar. Then it quickly became mayhem.

Cars scattered and pedestrians changed directions.  A group of people were about to walk in front of where someone fired shots.  The shooting was caught by three red light cameras.

What you can’t see on camera is a black SUV, where police believe a shooter fired into another car.  You can see the windshield shatter on the victim's car, both front and back.  The next car up, drove through the red light to get away.  It was nearly t-boned.

The shooting victim also drove against the red light and made a sharp left.  From another angle you can see the victim’s car run head on into two cars about to go west toward The Loop.  Powder from air bags can be seen shooting from the cars.

Then, you can see someone crawling out of the wreckage of the victim’s car. He appears to slide over the trunk of the car and look around. Then he jogs off camera, heading east on Delmar.  Police say that man later stole a car to get away before police arrived.  Police also say they found drugs in that vehicle.

A third camera angle appears too dark for clues, but St. Louis Police put all three angles on its police YouTube channel. You can watch the video below. Click here:  St. Louis Police YouTube
