ST. LOUIS — St. Louis police have identified two men who were shot and killed Wednesday evening in north St. Louis.

Officers with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department responded at 6:46 p.m. to the shooting on Garfield and North Newstead Avenues.

Two men were found inside a car with multiple gunshot wounds. They were pronounced dead at the scene. Police identified them Friday as 20-year-old Jeremiah Jackson of Glen Echo Park, and 30-year-old Montel Sanders of Woodson Terrace.

A 5 On Your Side photographer spotted bullet holes in the windshield and driver's side door of the car.

It's unclear what led up to the shooting.

A homicide investigation is underway.

Anyone with information is asked to call the department's Homicide Division at 314-444-5371, or anyone with a tip who wants to remain anonymous and is interested in a reward can contact CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS(8477).
