St. Louis County, MO (KTRS) Police are investigating a shooting in north county.
Police say an 18-year-old man was walking to a bus stop along the 3600 block of Oakdale Avenue in Uplands Park at just before 6 a.m Thursday. That’s when the victim was approached by three male suspects in a small, silver sport utility vehicle with tinted windows.
One of the suspects displayed a firearm and demanded property from him. The victim dropped his backpack to the ground and tried to run away. The victim was shot in the torso as he ran from the suspects.
The victim was taken to the hospital. His injuries aren’t said to be life threatening.
This comes after Thursday’s fatal triple shooting in Pine Lawn.
