ST. LOUIS ( – A 21-year-old man has been charged with murder and several other counts for his alleged involvement in a quadruple shooting that left one man dead in north St. Louis late Saturday night.

The Circuit Attorney's Office issued warrants against Darnell Hollings for first-degree murder, six counts of first-degree assault and seven counts of armed criminal action, shooting from a moving vehicle and felon in possession of a weapon.

St. Louis Metro Police told News 4 that officers responded to a call in the 5000 block of Durant just before midnight.  Police reports say that the four victims were discovered lying in the street suffering from gunshot wounds.

One victim, Carnez Winslett, a 36-year-old black male, suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. Winslett was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A second victim, a 21-year-old male, suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was taken to an area hospital where he is currently listed in serious condition.

The other two victims, 38 and 49-year-old men, each suffered a single gunshot wound, according to reports. They are currently listed in stable condition.

Reports say the incident began when two groups were arguing on the street. Hollings allegedly pulled out a gun and opened fire. Witnesses tell police he was seen leaving the scene in a silver 4-door sedan.
