ST. LOUIS - Police responded to a shooting in north St. Louis early Wednesday morning.

A witness told NewsChannel 5 he first heard eight to 10 shots, followed by another four or five shots. He said in the second round of gunfire, the person sounded like they may have been shooting at police.

However, shortly before 5 a.m., the department called off its officers from the scene. No one has been taken into custody in connection to the case.
