ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Two people were shot during a carjacking late Monday night on the city's north side. The victims were inside of a car on Anderson Avenue near Newstead just before 11 p.m.
According to St. Louis police, carjackers typically go out in groups of three and commit several carjackings in a single night. Many are between the age of 15 and 24.
As carjackings increase, police have seen a decrease in car thefts over the last decade in part because technology is making it harder to steal parked cars.
