(KMOV)--- Police are searching for a man and woman after another man was shot and killed at a bus stop in a Central West End neighborhood Tuesday night.

Authorities say a red Chevy Impala pulled up and the suspect began arguing with others standing at a bus stop in the 4400 block of Forest Park Parkway. 

That's when someone inside the Impala fired shots, striking two people at the bus stop, which is located near the Washington University Medical School and Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Police say a 31-year-old man was transported to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his lower and upper torso. He was later pronounced dead.  

A 41-year-old man was taken to the hospital with wounds to his lower abdomen. He underwent surgery and is listed in stable condition. 

According to police, the suspects are a black woman and a black man.

Additional details were not immediately available.
