One person was killed and three people were wounded in three separate shootings in north St. Louis County Thursday night.
Officers were dispatched to the area of Fay and Everett after receiving a report of “shots fried” around 8:17 p.m.
While they were on their way, officers received a call from police in Ferguson to inform them the subjects believed to be involved in a shooting in Berkeley were at an Imo’s Pizza in their jurisdiction.
