A third stabbing happened around 5 p.m. Saturday when police reported the 51-year-old male victim was sitting on a park bench in the 7700 block of S. Broadway when an unknown suspect cut the victim’s hand.

A final stabbing happened on Saturday when police reported a victim was walking along Chouteau and S. 14th Streets when three suspects approached him and knocked him to the ground.

Police said one of the suspects reached into the victim’s pocket, a 41-year-old male, taking his money. Police said there was a struggle when one of the suspects displayed a knife and cut the victim’s wrist. The victim was transported to the hospital.

Five different shooting incidents happened within the same time period over the weekend.

The first incident happened Saturday night just before 9 p.m. According to police, officers found a security guard assisting a victim shot in the shoulder.

Police stated the victim would not cooperate at the scene, but the security officer provided information. He told police he heard about four gun shots coming from the south. He said he saw the victim running from the direction of S. 9th Street and Chouteau when he sought help from the guard.

Police said the victim was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

Another three shooting incidents were reported happening within twenty minutes of each other.

St. Louis Police said a 42-year-old suspect fired multiple shots after an argument in the 5900 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard around 1:20 a.m. Police said the suspect took the gun from a vehicle. The suspect then fled the scene in that vehicle.

A vehicle matching the description was spotted by police who then took the suspect into custody.

Two suspects were treated at the hospital for gunshot wounds and released. Both victims were 18-years-old.

Another shooting incident happened ten minutes later in the 3100 block of Olive. Officers were working secondary at the Loft Night Club when they heard gunshots coming from a nearby gas station.
