ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Gunfire rang out Sunday morning in a south city neighborhood.

Two people were shot, all in an apparent fit of road rage.

The incident occurred just after 3 am when the car with the victims inside was pulling out of Uncle Bill's Pancakes.  A white Impala was pulling into the lot and was clipped by the other vehicle.

A witness said an altercation occurred that escalated quickly with three men jumping out of that Impala, and one heading across Kingshighway.

That man started firing at the car with a handgun.

The car made it to a Quik Trip parking lot in Richmond Heights.  It was there that police were called.  The vehicle, a Jeep, with Michigan plates, had at least two people inside that were hit.  Police say a male was grazed by a bullet, and a woman was shot twice in the back.  She's expected to recover.  Evidence markers showed at least eight bullet holes in the back of the car.
