ST. LOUIS — Two men are dead and two more were injured in a shooting police said was related to a car fire that closed multiple lanes of westbound Interstate 70 Wednesday evening.
The two men have been identified as 20-year-old Justin Kibble and 24-year-old Deshawn McGee.
Police said the shooting happened near the intersection of Bircher and Plover near I-70 around 4:30 p.m. They said the car that ended up on fire next to the highway, had sped down Plover and crashed through a concrete barrier before stopping and catching fire.
