UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KMOX/AP) — Police in the St. Louis suburb of University City are searching for the gunmen who shot and killed a teenage girl as she was sitting on her front porch Thursday.

Police identified the victim as 17-year-old Destinee Clemons. A second teen was injured, but her name and condition have not been released.

Police say the girls apparently did not know the shooters in the drive-by.

Witnesses told police that four men in a compact car drove by and one of them opened fire on the house. The motive is not known.
