ST. LOUIS — An investigation is underway after a double shooting inside an apartment in St. Louis' Downtown West neighborhood early Wednesday morning.
Around 12:40 a.m., police responded to the CityView Apartments in the 100 block of N. 17th St.
Officers found a man who had been shot several times. He was pronounced dead at the scene. He's been identified as 22-year-old Jim Floyd.
A 20-year-old woman was also found with gunshot wounds. She was transported to a hospital where she's in critical condition.
Police believe the suspect shot the two victims as they walked away from an argument. The suspect fled the scene on foot, police said.
Anyone with information should contact SLMPD's Homicide Division at 314-444-5371 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
This is the same apartment complex where a 4-year-old accidentally shot herself in January after finding an unattended gun.
Charges in that case were filed on Tuesday against 19-year-old Ishmale Woodard. He is not yet in police custody.
