ST. LOUIS COUNTY - Three people were shot after a funeral reception in north St. Louis County Friday, police said.

Around 3:20 p.m., St. Louis County officers responded to The Ambassador, an event center located in north St. Louis County, for reports of a shooting. Officers found three men outside of the building with gunshot wounds upon arrival and were transported to area hospitals for 'life-saving' treatment.

An investigation into the shooting determined up to 300 people were inside of The Ambassador following a funeral nearby. An apparent dispute began near the front of the building in the parking lot, which led to an undermined number of people firing at the crowd from inside a white car. The car fled the scene after firing shots.

The three men, two in their 20s and one in his 50s, were expected to survive. Numerous cars were struck as a result of the gunfire.

The identities of those inside the white sedan have not been located.

St. Louis County Police Department's Bureau of Crimes Against Persons is investigating the case.
