Video captures shots being fired on Washington Avenue in Midtown

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Police are investigating a shooting that happened in midtown St. Louis early Thursday morning.

Officers responded to a call for shots fired in the 2600 block of Washington around 2:06 a.m., just west of Jefferson Street.

A video was recorded of the shooting. In the video, many people were involved in what looks like a fight when the shots were fired. Some neighbors said they believe the shots were fired to break up the fight.

Police say they are still looking for the suspects and any victims.

The person who shot the video of the shooting said activity in the area often gets noisy because of nearby nightclubs, but also said there isn't secondary security to calm things down.

The organization Downtown STL, which promotes downtown development, provides guides services for the downtown area, but does not provide such a service to Washington Avenue.
