(KMOV.com) – Authorities are investigating after a man was shot after leaving a west St. Louis Steak n’ Shake early Tuesday morning.

Police say three people were inside a vehicle that had just turned left onto Southwood from S. Skinker when a vehicle that had been tailing them made a U-turn.

A person in the other vehicle then started firing shots towards the victims.

A 23-year-old man in the front passenger seat was struck in the upper back. The other two occupants, a 23-year-old woman and 24-year-old man, were not hit. The victim was taken to an area hospital and is listed in stable condition.

The suspect's vehicle escaped going south on Skinker.

According to police, the victims were involved in an argument at a nearby establishment prior to the incident. Police told News 4 earlier in the day the victims had just left Steak n’ Shake.

No other details were immediately available.
