ST. LOUIS — Police were called to the 1600 block of Burd Avenue in the Wells Goodfellow neighborhood Tuesday to investigate a shooting. A witness says they heard a loud bang at around 2:30 p.m. at the schoolhouse of Arlington Grove Apartments.
Officers ran to the third floor and ripped off the south rear door on the first floor. First responders found a man with a gunshot wound who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Some residents said the doors are constantly broken in the complex, and there are often people who don’t live in the building visiting.
