ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Authorities have identified a man killed during a shootout between two vehicles in north St. Louis that left three others wounded.

Terry Robinson, 29, was found shot in the head, chest and arm at Lillian and Goodfellow, about one mile from where a gunfight began around 5 p.m. Friday.

According to police, armed men inside a white SUV exchanged gunfire with four occupants of a sedan at the intersection of Riverview and West Florissant. A 26-year-old victim was found with gunshot wounds to the leg and back in the 5500 block of West Florissant. He was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.

A 27-year-old male victim was also found at the intersection of Lillian and Goodfellow, with gunshot wounds to the face, hand and leg. He was transported to the hospital in unknown condition.

Police found another male victim, also age 27, near Geraldine and Bircher with a gunshot wound to the hand. He was hospitalized in stable condition

Investigators say they located a funeral tag hanging inside the victims' sedan. Police sources say the gunfight may have been retaliation for the shooting death of a man last week, whose funeral was held earlier on Friday.

Multiple police vehicles and an ambulance remained on the scene for several hours as detectives examined bullet casings and vehicles.

Police have released no information on any suspects in the case.
