ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Police are investigating the third shooting this week on St. Louis Avenue after a male victim in his early 20s was shot in the neck around 1 a.m. Saturday.

The victim is in critical, unstable condition.

Friday, police said a man, later identified as 24-year-old Clinton Johnson, was shot in the 5200 block of St. Louis Avenue, near Union Boulevard around 2:15 p.m.. Police said two men who they think may be suspects were seen running away from the scene down an alley. More than a dozen shell casings were found at the scene.

Authorities believe the shooting may have been the result of a feud between two families.

On Wednesday, two people were shot in the same location. In that shooting, a 26-year-old female was shot in the back and a 22-year-old man was shot in the foot.
