ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Two men are in critical condition after a rolling gun battle injured three people in Pagedale Wednesday night.

The occupants of a black Jeep Grand Cherokee and a silver Chevrolet Camaro were engaged in a rolling gun battle in the 7500 block of Page Avenue around 8:15 p.m., police said.

According to police, someone involved in the shooting had a Tech-9 which contained live rounds. The rounds exploded when the gun was dropped out of a window, police said. A witness spotted the gun and alerted police. Authorities later located a gun near The Cheshire Hotel on Clayton Road. Someone later located a second gun on Skinker.

Roughly 15 minutes after police received reports of the gunshots, the Camaro, which was carrying three men, showed up at the hospital.

The vehicle the gunshot victims arrived at the hospital in was reportedly stolen out of Richmond Heights.

Two of the men were listed in critical condition. The third was treated and is expected to be released.

Authorities originally believed the shooting occurred in University City.
