(KMOV.com) – Police are investigating after a woman was found lying in the street with multiple gunshot wounds in north St. Louis Saturday.

Police say the incident occurred around 11:45 p.m. in the 5600 block of Lilian. 

Officials say 35-year-old Margaree Dixson, of the 4900 block of Davison, sustained gunshot wounds to the head, chest, arms, and hands. Dixson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said Dixson's brother, Jermaine Jones, was shot and killed in the 5700 block of Saloma early Sunday morning.

That incident happened around 2:10 a.m. when officers responded to a call for a shooting at Saloma and Wren. Police say Jones, 29, of the 6800 block of Frostview, had been taken to a hospital before they arrived. 

Officials say Jones sustained gunshot wounds to the chest and leg and was later pronounced dead. 

Police say three people who were with Jones at the time of the shooting told officers an unidentified man began firing at them.
