ST. LOUIS – Within the span of two hours overnight, four people were killed in separate shootings across St. Louis. Three people were murdered in one of those incidents, one person was killed in another incident nearby.

Meanwhile, in another shooting, St. Louis Police are investigating an incident where a pregnant woman showed up at a local hospital about 8:45 p.m. shot in the stomach. The shooting happened in the Manchester Road/Tower Grove Avenue area in South St. Louis. Police say the woman is in stable condition and the baby is still alive.

Then just after 10:00 p.m. police got another call after shots were fired about a block away on Harney. When police arrived, they found an adult male who had been shot in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
