ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A teenager is recovering after being shot in the arm in west St. Louis overnight.

The 17-year-old was seated in a vehicle in the 1900 block of Hodiamont with a woman he had just met when an unknown suspect approached him, displayed a firearm and demanded he exit the vehicle around 2:30 a.m. The teenager attempted to drive away from the suspect after the demand was made.

As the teenager attempted to drive away, the woman exited the vehicle and the suspect fired shots, striking the 17-year-old in the wrist.

The suspect and woman left the scene in a white Mercury Cougar.

The teenager was taken to a local hospital in stable condition after the shooting.

A police investigation revealed the 17-year-old was inside a vehicle that was reported stolen in November when the shooting occurred.
