St. Louis police say a 9 year old boy who was shot while riding in a car early Wednesday morning has died.
Police say Tyrese Short had been riding in a car with his father, another man and a woman in north St. Louis, when a man in another car shot him. No one else was injured.
The boy was taken to a nearby police station for help. He was rushed to St. Louis Children's Hospital, but died later in the day.
St. Louis Police Captain Michael Sack says investigator suspect that the boy's father or the 22 year old man driving had been the gunman's target. An 18 year old woman was also in the car. Police say it's unclear why the child and his father were out at 3:30 in the morning.
No information has been released about a possible suspect.
