ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – An early Sunday morning shooting on Washington Avenue in St. Louis leaves a man hospitalized in serious condition.
City police department spokeswoman Katie O’Sullivan says the incident began with an argument inside a nightclub, “The victim and suspect were asked to leave the business, and it appears the suspect went to his car and got a gun. He then shot the suspect in both thighs.”
Police have not identified the club, saying only that it’s in the 1900 block of Washington Avenue.
The victim is identified only as a 25-year-old man.
