(KTVI) - A former Rams player has been caught in the crossfire overnight in North St. Louis.  Around midnight at Lillian and Kingshighway,  someone shot at another car and the cab that the former player was in was hit, along with a Metro bus.  The former Ram was hit by broken glass from a bullet that hit the cab but he was not hurt.  It is believed that he was the only passenger in the cab.  He has not been identified.

There were no passengers on the Metro bus.

The driver says she heard a series of shots, slammed on the breaks and hit the floor.  According to police, a car was turning onto Southbound Kingshighway from Lillian when shots were fired at the car.  Police aren't certain if the shots came from another car or someone on the street.  Investigators say a 30-year-old black male was hit in the back.  He was taken to the hospital by another person in the car with him.  He is listed in critical but stable condition.  It is unclear if the car was targeted or if it was a random attack.

Police have no suspects.

    Crack deal gone bad. What’s a former Ram doing in a cab @ midnight on a Sunday in the hood? Was it Kurt Warner?

    “Around midnight” is the normal time for shots to be fired on those streets . The crossfire is a disease the ganstas have been spreading for many years. Time for a march by the Ram players and some prayin by Kurt Warners almost-a-reverend wife to end this violence.
