ST. LOUIS – A man was shot in the back on the 700 block of Thrush early this morning, 10 hours after a triple shooting left one dead.
While three men sat on the front porch of an area residence, four men wearing dark clothes shot at them and struck one in the upper shoulder and back.
The victim was transported to the hospital just after 1 a.m., and is in critical but stable condition. There is no indication why the shooting occurred.
The previous day, a shooting happened on the same block that left one woman dead and two others injured. Those two people are each in stable condition.
There is no word if the two shootings are related.
