St. Louis (KSDK) - Investigators say two people are in custody in connection with an overnight shooting. They also towed their vehicle, recovered on the 800 block of Hamilton.

This started near Grand and Lafayette around 4 a.m. Sunday when a female was shot in the head.

Police say the woman, 28, was a passenger in a car traveling west on Lafayette.  The driver, 26, says he saw two people rummaging through the trunk of a dark, two-door vehicle.  When the couple approached in their car, one of the suspects stepped out into the street and pointed a handgun at them.

When the couple began to back up, the suspect opened fire on their car.  The woman in the passenger seat was shot in the head.  Police say she is hospitalized in critical and unstable condition.
