ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A teen kicked out of a downtown St. Louis event hall has been shot in both legs by a driveby gunman.

Police say the 16-year-old and several other juveniles were asked to leave The Paragon Theatre, Friday night, following a disturbance.

Witnesses say the 16-year-old had walked around the corner at 19th and Locust when a car rolled up.

Someone in the car asked “Where you from?”, and then shot the victim in both legs.

The gunmen got away.

The 16-year-old was taken to a local hospital.

He’s in serious, but stable condition.
