ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Three teenagers were hospitalized and a man was taken into custody following a triple shooting early Tuesday morning in north St. Louis.

Then victims, described as being 16, 18 and 19 years old, were in the 3800 block of St. Louis when the shooting occurred around 3:20 a.m.

The 16-year-old sustained a graze wound to his forehead, the 18-year-old was shot in the shoulder and the 19-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the back. All three were listed in stable condition.

Police said the victims provided conflicting accounts of the shooting, but it appeared they were shot while inside a vehicle.

A fourth person at the shooting scene, a 22-year-old man, was taken into custody after officers reportedly saw him run into a gangway holding a black bag. When the bag was recovered from the area, two stolen guns were found inside, police said.

No other information has been released.
