JENNINGS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Police say a man was shot to death Thursday night in Jennings.

Around 8:10 p.m., Ferguson police received a call for a person lying in the middle of the street unresponsive. Ferguson police said the location was actually in Jennings city limits so they notified St. Louis County police.

When County officers arrived on the scene in the 8300 block of Willett Drive, they found a man who they say had been shot. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Residents in the area told authorities they did not hear any gunshots. One witness said the victim had left a nearby convenience store a few minutes earlier.

Police are investigating the incident.
