A little over an hour later, officers in St. Louis City were called to the 3700 block of South Compton where two women and a teenager were shot.

Officers said a 27-year-old woman was grazed in the ear by a bullet. Another woman, 26, was shot in the leg. The third victim, a 16-year-old boy suffered a grazed wound to the buttocks.

Less than 45 minutes later, officers were called to a hospital after a 39-year-old man came in with a gunshot wound to the leg.

The victim told officers he was in an alley in the 4800 block of Kossuth when he was shot. Police said the man did not see who fired the shot.

The man is listed in stable condition.
