(KMOV) – Authorities are looking for three suspects after a shooting left one man dead and another in the hospital early Monday morning.

Police said two men, 38 and 24, were getting into a vehicle in the 5100 block of St. Louis around 1 a.m. when three suspects walked up from between two homes.

The suspects then started shooting, striking the 38-year-old in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other victim was transported to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. He has since been released.

Police did not say how many shots were fired, but a News 4 photographer at the scene counted at least 25 markers that indicate shell casings.

Authorities did not release any other details on suspects.

Additional information was not immediately available.
