ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Numerous victims were robbed at gunpoint near Chambers Park Thursday.

The incident happened at 11 p.m. at the intersection of Compton Ave. and School St. Reports say two men in a silver-colored Pontiac approached seven victims with guns and ordered them to get on the ground.
