ST. LOUIS — An investigation is underway after a man was found shot outside of a St. Louis fast food restaurant over the weekend.

Police responded to White Castle at 2009 Hebert in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood early Sunday morning.

A man was found on the ground outside the business with a gunshot wound to his buttocks, according to the police report.

The man was transported to a hospital where his condition has not been made available. Police said the man’s vitals were ‘stable’ when he was transported to the hospital.

No other details have been made available.

Over the weekend in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood, Crown Candy Kitchen was damaged. A car was caught on camera speeding through the neighborhood and then hitting Crown Candy's fence and then going through the shed and hit the brick wall so hard it knocked bricks loose. Three weeks prior, two kids were caught on camera damaging the restaurant. 

The kids destroyed the door of the restaurant, but didn't get in. 

Even though they're shaken up, Andy told 5 On Your Side, they're going to continue cooking up a sweet experience for years to come. "This is our home this is where we're going to be. This is where we belong."
