ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A 19-year-old is recovering after being shot and hit by a vehicle Tuesday night.

Officers were on patrol when they heard numerous gunshots and saw a man lying in the street in the 1200 block of South 11th Street with a gunshot wound to his head around 8 p.m.

The victim told officers he was running from the area after hearing the gunfire and was struck by an unknown vehicle, which fled the scene. Authorities said they recovered a gun from the victim.

A short time later, an area hospital requested officers for another victim of the shooting, described as a 17-year-old male, who was being treated for a gunshot wound to the leg.

Both men were listed in stable condition.

The investigation is ongoing.
