EAST ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - -

One man is dead and another man was left seriously injured after they were shot in the 400 block of Wimmer in East St. Louis early Tuesday morning.

Police say the suspect, who is still at large, might have been a jealous boyfriend.

In the early part of the investigation, police discovered that the victims were not from the area. The man killed was visiting from Texas. While it is unknown where the second victim was from, police know he is from out of state.

Illinois State Police tell News 4 there has been an uptick in homicide cases in that area of East St. Louis as of late.

The investigation is ongoing and News 4 will continue to update this story as more details are made available.
