ST. LOUIS (AP) — Four people were shot outside a downtown St. Louis restaurant over the weekend during an argument among several people, police said.
The shooting happened late Saturday night outside Reign Restaurant, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Police said a 23-year-old man shot in the back and side and a 29-year-old man shot in the chest underwent surgery and were in critical but stable condition. A 36-year-old man hit in the buttocks and a 22-year-old woman shot in a foot are expected to fully recover, police said.
A preliminary investigation showed a group of people were arguing in front of the restaurant when several began firing at each other, police said. Several nearby businesses and apartments were hit by bullets, some of which broke windows. No one inside the businesses or apartments was injured in the gunfire, police said.
