ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- A man is  hospitalized after he was shot at near the  St. Louis Fire Department Headquarters Friday morning. The 25-year old victim told police that he was driving a Camero north on Jefferson just after 2:00am when another car drove up and someone inside began shooting at him.

He ducked to avoid the shots and that caused him to crash through the fence on the St. Louis Fire Department Academy at Jefferson and Thomas in north St. Louis.  The suspect car, a black Dodge Charger,  followed the victim onto the property.

The victim ran to the back door of headquarters for help. He had been shot once in the buttocks and is listed in critical but stable condition.

The suspect fled the scene on foot.

Authorities say the cars hit a fire department trailer as well as two parked vehicles that belonged to firefighters. One of the cars involved in the gun battle that crashed actually had a parking meter in it.

No arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing.
