Bystander Injured in Rolling Gun Battle
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A man sitting outside a popular downtown bar was wounded early this morning by a stray bullet.
The victim was sitting on the patio of the Broadway Oyster Bar, a couple blocks south of Busch Stadium, at about 2 a.m. when a rolling gun battle went through the White Castle across the street.
As the occupants of the two cars fired shots at each other, a bullet flew across Gratiot Street and hit the man in the shoulder.
He’s in stable condition right now. Investigators will likely be looking for surveillance video that will show the vehicles involved, but so far they have no suspects.
