SOUTH ST. LOUIS ( -- Detectives are investigating an early morning shooting that left a teenage boy wounded in south St. Louis. 

Around 3 a.m. Sunday, officers arrived to the 900 block of Hickory Street where they found an 18-year-old boy shot in the leg. The teen told police he was in the 1000 block of LaSalle Park Ct. with a 23-year-old man when three suspects began firing shots at them. 

Officials said the two victims ran for cover but stopped on Hickory Street once the teen realized he was struck by a bullet. 

The 23-year-old was not injured during the shooting, police say.

While investigating, detectives learned a home in the 1100 block of S. 11 Street was also reportedly struck by gunfire. No one was injured inside.

Limited details have been released. Anyone with information is urged to contact local police.
