TOWN AND COUNTRY (KMOV) - A 20-year-old man was shot near Town and Country retirement center Tuesday evening.

Officers received calls about shots fired around 6:40 p.m. in the 13000 block of South Outer Forty Road, near Delmar Gardens Villas West Retirement Community. Police found the victim lying on the pavement when they arrived on the scene. He was taken to a hospital in critical but stable condition and is expected to survive. Police believe the victim worked at Gardens Villa West.

“We don’t believe that this was just some random act and that these suspects most likely knew each other,” said Sgt. Jeff McNutt with Town and Country Police Department.

McNutt reported that officers have been conducting a “labor intensive” investigation, which has included neighborhood canvasses, multiple interviews and locating people who knew the victim. He asks anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the shooting and saw a station wagon/small SUV-style vehicle in a light color or beige tinted color to contact the police at 314-747-4600.

South Outer Forty Road between Highway 141 and Maryville Center was closed for several hours but has since reopened.
