ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the shooting death of a man in the College Hill neighborhood Wednesday evening.

Police arrived to the crime scene in the 2000 block of East John around 7:15 p.m. and found the bullet riddled body of a 26 year old man.  The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say they have learned the victim was sitting on his porch when a vehicle pulled up in front of the home.  Four men, all armed with handguns approached the victim who tried to run from the porch.

The gunmen caught up with the victim on the side of the house and began shooting.  The four men then retreated to their vehicle and fled.

Police expect to release more information once the victim is identified and his family can be notified.  Anyone with any information in the investigation is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.
