ST. LOUIS ( – A man was shot while walking with friends in the Central West End early Thursday morning.

Around 2:20 a.m., police were notified that a 19-year-old had been dropped off at the hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. The victim told police he was walking with two friends in an unknown location in the Central West End when he heard gunshots and realized he had been shot.
