12-year-old shot in north St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – A 12-year-old girl was shot in the thigh after three unknown suspects began firing at a crowd gathered at a north city home Saturday night, police say.

Police say several people were at a home in the 4400 block of St. Ferdinand when the three suspects walked through the vacant lot across the street and began firing gunshots at the crowd. A 39-year-old man got a gun and returned fire, causing the suspects to flee south through the vacant lot and out of sight.

The 12-year-old victim was treated and released at a local hospital. A 43-year-old man was also hit, but refused medical treatment.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
