A violent weekend in the city of St. Louis claimed the lives of four people and led to injuries for four more. 

Eight shootings led to three homicides and one suicide. 

Police responded to the 3800 block of Sullivan early Saturday to find Travis Phillips, 27, fatally shot in a vacant house. Phillips was homeless and police say the suspect is a 26-year-old man.

Around 6:45 p.m. Saturday, police say a 27-year-old man was shot while walking in the 5500 block of Emerson. The man was near Emerson and West Florissant when he heard gunshots and felt pain in his abdomen. He's expected to survive. Police say the suspect was driving a gold Pontiac Grand Prix with tinted windows.

Just 15 minutes later, a 19-year-old male was walking in the 4300 block of Lee when he heard gunshots and realized he had been shot in his leg. A relative took him to the hospital and he's listed as stable. 

Around 2:04 a.m. Sunday, two men who police say were partying in Sr. Marie Charles Park possibly opened fire on each other. Two 22-year-old men sustained gunshot wounds and were taken to the hospital.

An hour later, police went to the 4300 block of Chippewa to find Jeremey McCartney, 24, inside an apartment suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. McCartney was later pronounced dead at the scene. 

Several hours later, police were requested to the 3900 block of Fairview where they are investigating a possible murder-suicide.

Two subjects, 42-year-old Tanisha Williams and 39-year-old Arvel Long, were found dead of gunshot wounds. Area residents heard gunshots on Friday, but were uncertain where it had come from. 

Family had been trying to contact the two parties since Friday.
