At least three people are dead and two others have been injured after fivepeople were reportedly been shot in the northern part of St. Louis, Missouri, according to local media.
One other victim is in critical condition, while another is in serious condition.
The shooting occurred at about 8:49 p.m. local time on Monday night at a home in the city. Police are investigating what led up to the shooting, and are investigating whether it could have been a home invasion. The homeowner is still alive, and the victims who have died did not live at the home, police say.
The shooting reportedly occurred in what is referred to as the police chief’s “rectangle,” an area that police have targeted with officers in order to prevent violence.
