NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY( An investigation is underway following a quadruple shooting outside of a Wellston market overnight. 

According to police, four people were shot following a drive-by shooting near the Wellston Food Market on Page just before midnight Tuesday. All of the victims were taken to local hospitals. 

Last week, North County Cooperative Police Officer Michael Langsdorf was fatally shot at the market while responding to a report of someone cashing a bad check.
