Police are investigating the shooting of a 17 year old Sumner High School student, shot about 45 minutes after classes let out for the day.
Police got the call for help a little after 3 p.m. to the 4200 Block of Cottage Avenue, the street that runs in front of Sumner High School.
A 17 year old was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the buttocks, according to school district officials who were given updates on the student's condition.
Saint Louis Police taped off the scene in front of the school and crime scene detectives collected evidence for nearly 2 hours Monday afternoon. Police say they do not have a suspect in custody.
It's not clear what motivated the shooting or if police have a description of the suspect or vehicles.
