3 dead, another hospitalized after separate shootings in north St. Louis


ST. LOUIS — Three people are dead and a fourth is hospitalized after another night of gun violence in north St. Louis.

Police cite two separate shootings Tuesday that brought the city's homicide total for 2014 to 108. There were 88 killings in all of 2013.

The first shooting happened about 12:30 a.m. when at least two suspects fired more than two dozen shots into a van, killing one man and injuring another. The injured man is hospitalized in stable condition with a leg wound.

About 9 a.m., police found two mean dead of apparent gunshot wounds in O'Fallon Park.

Police say it isn't yet clear if the shootings are connected. Names have not been released. No arrests have been made.
