ST. LOUIS — Three men were killed and four more were injured in a shooting Monday evening in the city's Greater Ville neighborhood

They were shot about 7:30 p.m. to the 4000 block of Sullivan Avenue. Police said Tuesday they were still trying to determine a motive.

The men who died were identified as Kevin Page, 40, Charlie Anderson, 31, and O.J. Pernell, 44. 

They all lived in the St. Louis area. Page lived in the 1300 block of Elkhart Drive in Ferguson, Anderson lived in the 2700 block of Allen Avenue and Pernell lived in the 3900 block of Palm Street.

St. Louis police Chief John Hayden said four other men were injured in the same shooting. One of the four men, a 47-year-old, was found bleeding but alive inside a business. He had been shot in the legs and torso. He was described by police as a possible suspect. He was in critical but stable condition at a hospital. 

Police identified Page, Anderson and Pernell as victims, but also suspects. The "motives and roles" of the men were still being investigated, police said Tuesday.

Pernell had been shot in the torso and collapsed in the courtyard of nearby Farragut Elementary School, and Page and Anderson were found dead near a curb outside a convenience store. 

As police were investigating the scene on Sullivan, the fifth, sixth and seventh victims were discovered. One man had driven himself to a hospital after being shot in the arm. He is 28 years old. A man, 29, was found bleeding in the 4400 block of Penrose Avenue. He had been shot in the legs. He was taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition. And a man, 30, was found in Overland and had been grazed in the back by a bullet. He was treated at a hospital and released.
