ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Nine people are recovering from bullet wounds suffered in five shootings in the St. Louis area overnight. Three of the attacks happened in the city, one at a Metro Station and one in Berkeley.

It started at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday when two men, ages 19 and 20, suffered gunshot wounds in the 8600 block of North Broadway, in north St. Louis’ Baden neighborhood.

At 8:30 p.m., one man was shot in a leg and one in a stomach on a porch at Penrose and Newstead, also on the north side.

Then, at about 10:30 p.m., a 23-year-old man was shot several times and a 34-year-old woman was hit in a leg while on the sidewalk in the 2200 block of Shenandoah, in the near south side’s McKinley Heights neighborhood.

Police have no suspects in those attacks.

There’s also no information on who fired the shots at the North Hanley Metro station at about 11:15 p.m. Witnesses say the shots ended an argument among more than a half-dozen men. One man suffered a leg wound.

And in Berkeley, police say a woman showed up at the police station shortly before 2 a.m. to report that the man in her car had been shot in the 6100 block of Washington by a man they had been speaking with. It was then discovered that she had also been shot.

Berkeley police know that shooter, but haven’t found him yet.

All the victims are expected to live.
