ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A 23-year-old man was injured during a shootout on westbound Interstate 70 in north St. Louis early Wednesday morning.

According to police, the man, who was in a white Dodge Magnum, and the occupant of another vehicle, possibly a black sedan, were shooting at one another on the interstate just after 4 a.m. During the shootout, the driver of the Dodge Magnum lost control and struck a median near West Florissant.

The man’s bullet-riddled white vehicle was later found facing eastbound in the westbound lanes of the interstate near West Florissant. It appeared the vehicle had sustained at least five bullet holes.

Police originally said they could not locate a victim but later said a driver of the Magnum was taken to the hospital in a private vehicle. He was shot multiple times in the chest and was listed in serious, stable condition.  

The investigation is ongoing.
