ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Police are investigating a shooting at the Hampton Gardens apartment complex near Hampton Avenue and Arsenal Street that happened Tuesday night.

Police said one victim, described as a black male in his 20's, was taken to the hospital.  He had been shot multiple times.  

The second victim, who police have identified as Arrion Calvin, 17, was found deceased inside and apartment.  

Neighbors told police they heard yelling and banging prior to the incident, but did not hear any shots.  Despite the neighbors not hearing anything, authorities say more than 20 shots were fired.

Police say the victims knew the suspects and tell News 4 that they are unsure if there are additional victims who may have been shot.

"Right now we don't know unless they show up at the hospital," Lt. John Green said. "We will just wait and see if anyone shows up hurt or injured or shot."

While police were on scene, another man and woman who live in the apartment arrived and authorities took them into custody.  Investigators aren’t sure of their involvement at this time, but they did find two guns in the vehicle when the couple arrived. Police have recovered at least four guns and a sizable amount of marijuana at the scene.
