BROOKLYN, Ill. (AP) - Investigators say they've identified the man gunned down outside a metro east strip club as a 27-year-old St. Louis resident.
Illinois State Police tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Michael Brooks was shot several times early Sunday outside Roxy's Strip Club in Brooklyn. He died later at a hospital.
Authorities say Brooks had just stepped from his car when he was approached by two men who emerged from another vehicle. The suspects fled.
There's no immediate word on any arrests being made in the case.
It happened about 2:00 Monday morning, when a pickup truck struck an car on Rte 3 in Brooklyn, Illinois. The truck pushed the car onto the bridge.
One passenger in the car was partially ejected. Both that passenger and the driver were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Police are now looking for the pickup driver. He reportedly stuck around long enough to flag down another motorist for help, then took off.
