St. Louis Shootings Result in Nine People Being Wounded

There has been an increase in violent crime in St. Louis in recent weeks, and in addition to the fights that have broken out during rallies and protests, the number of shootings that have taken place have been at an all-time high.

While no one was immediately killed, according to an article on the local CBS affiliate website nine people were wounded in a series of shootings in St. Louis. The shootings took place in three separate events, and a four-year-old child was among the victims.

One of the shootings involved a vehicle crashing into a St. Louis business in the Soulard area. One of the men who were in the car at that time has passed away. The others remain in stable condition.
