UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KSDK) - One person has been hospitalized after a shooting at a University City strip mall.

Police say the person was shot just after 12 a.m. Thursday in the 7800 block of Olive, at the Westover Center strip mall between Mt. Olive Avenue and Eastover Avenue.

The victim was taken to an area hospital. That person's condition has not been released.

Numerous shots were fired at the scene, and NewsChannel 5 Photojournalist Chris Cross counted 20 shell casings on the ground.

Police do not have any suspects at this time.

The only business open in the strip mall at the time of the shooting was a bar located at the other end, and a lot of people inside came outside to see what was going on.

Police say they are not saying at this time if there was any connection at all to the business.
