ST. LOUIS ( – Two people were shot within three hours in downtown St. Louis overnight.

The first shooting happened just before 11 p.m. while the victim was driving near the south leg of the Gateway Arch. Shell casings were seen on part of Leonor K. Sullivan at the Arch Riverfront following the shooting. Police said a man sustained a gunshot wound to the arm at the location.

Just under three hours later, a man was shot while inside a vehicle stopped at a light at South Jefferson and Market Street. According to police, the injured man was driven to the Pear Tree Inn and then first responders took him to the hospital. A suspect was later taken into custody.

The shootings were just two of five across the City of St. Louis in the same time span, which included a double shooting at Lowell and Freemont and a man shot in the leg in the 1400 block of Peabody Court.

All the shooting victims were listed as stable. 

No other information has been released.
