Authorities said the victim was shot near the intersection of Jennings Station and Halls Ferry around 11:45 p.m.

Police said the man then ran to a home on Altonwood Drive. Someone there then called authorities and the victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities continue to look for a suspect in the case. Additional details surrounding the shooting were not immediately available.

The incident caps off a violent three days in the north St. Louis County town.
