ST. LOUIS – One person was killed, and two others were injured in two separate shootings that occurred overnight in north St. Louis.
Police told FOX 2 at this point there are no suspects in either shooting and the incidents don’t appear to be related. Police got the call for the latest shooting just after 1:00 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Cora and Sacramento Avenues.
Authorities shared that an adult male was shot multiple times. He was found outside and transported to a nearby hospital. Police didn’t find out about the shooting until the victim was already at the hospital.
Homicide detectives were initially called in because it appeared death was imminent. However, the case was handed back to investigators at the district level because the victim is expected to survive.
The case is now being handled as a first-degree assault.
About four hours earlier and four miles away, another shooting happened on Floy Avenue around 9:00 p.m. Monday. This one was a double shooting and a homicide.
In this case, police shared that two men were shot. Authorities explained one of the men in his 20s was shot in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene. The other man is in his 30s and was shot in his stomach and leg.
Investigators said he was conscious and breathing when he was taken from the scene to the hospital. He is expected to survive. Homicide detectives have been called in to handle that incident.
You are urged to call the police if you have any information on either of these cases. FOX 2 will update this story with more information as it becomes available.
