FLORISSANT, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Two brothers were arrested after allegedly firing shots into a Florissant home that injured two Monday night.

Around 1 a.m., police were called to the 500 block of St. Christina after receiving a report of gunshots. When officers arrived, they found the victims, who were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said it appears to have been a targeted shooting.
