2 People shot after man tries to rob them in downtown

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Two people were shot after a man got out of a car that pulled up beside them in downtown St. Louis and tried to rob one of them Sunday morning.

Police say the victims were eastbound on Dr. Martin Luther King Drive near 13th Street when a 2-door Pontiac pulled up beside them around 2:15 in the morning. A suspect described as a black male wearing a white t-shirt and a white bandana got out of the car.

Investigators say the suspect approached a woman in the car and tried to take her purse. The woman struggled with him and he shot her in the left thigh. The other victim, a 22-year-old man, ran northbound on Tucker when the suspect shot at him, hitting him in the left thigh and calf. Another person in the car was uninjured.

Both victims were taken to area hospitals and are stable.
