   A triple shooting just blocks away from a neighborhood crime summit Monday night is reinforcing the message that residents and police have to work together to combat violence in the City of St. Louis.  

   Police Chief Sam Dotson was on his way to the summit hosted by Better Family Life when he was called to the 4500 block of Evans where two men and a woman were shot.  

   Chief Dotson says there were several people outside in the area when a lone gunman approached the porch of a home and opened fire, but some of the witnesses aren't cooperating.  "So it makes it very hard when we come to a scene, when we have information that we're looking for, and even family members aren't cooperating," Dotson said.

   Cooperation was the message at the crime summit attended by the Chief, Mayor Francis Slay and about 200 residents.  Better Family Life founder Malik Ahmed was cheered when he told the crowd that regular citizens need to get involved in order to bring peace to the streets.  "Our community cannot afford to have a negative relationship with the police," Ahmed said.

  All three of the shooting victims are in critical condition.  
   
   Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at 866-371-TIPS.
