(KMOV) – Police responded to a shooting in north St. Louis Sunday night that left five people injured in the 2000 block of East John around 7:30 p.m.
Police say five people were on a porch when a vehicle drove by and the suspect inside began shooting. Once the suspects began shooting, the victims pulled out their own guns and began firing back at the suspects.
All four were wounded during the shooting, but have all been listed in stable condition and were transported to a local hospital for treatment.
Authorities say they have taken three people into custody and one of the suspects was already wanted on warrants. Several cars in the area were damaged from gunfire. Police also say none of the victims or suspects are cooperating.
The investigation is ongoing.
