Man shot in head after vehicle breaks down in south St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Authorities are looking for two suspects who shot a 38-year-old man after his vehicle broke down in south St. Louis early Monday.

Police said the victim was waiting for assistance in the 1600 block of S. Jefferson around 2 a.m. when two men approached in a maroon-colored truck.

Authorities said the suspects told the victim to pay them for assistance, but he refused.

That’s when one of the suspects fired three shots toward the victim, grazing him in the head and striking his left arm, according to police.

The victim then walked into a gas station located at Jefferson and Lafayette to call for help. He was transported to an area hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
