 (KMOV)— Police are investigating after a teen was shot Sunday night in south St. Louis.

Authorities say a 14-year-old female was shot in the head around 10 p.m. at the intersection of Gustine and Dunnica.

The victim was taken to an area hospital where she is listed in critical condition.

Witnesses say they had heard gunshots earlier in the day following a fight in the park. The victim's friend, Teauna Willis, said she was only steps away when her friend was shot.

"They started shooting at us and when she fell she didn't get back up," Willis said. "I saw the lights from the gun flashing."

Police have not released the victim's name.

No suspects are in custody at this time.
