3 people shot Wednesday in north St. Louis


Updated at 4 p.m. Thursday with more information. 

ST. LOUIS — Three people were shot Wednesday evening in the city's Mark Twain I-70 Industrial neighborhood, police say. 

Police were called about 5:45 p.m. to the 4000 block of Dressell Avenue, where rifle casings littered the street for almost a block. 

The shooting followed a fight that escalated to gunshots, police say. The three people injured, males aged 29, 28 and 19, were transported to a hospital. Police have not provided information about their conditions. 

Wednesday's triple shooting was the latest in an especially violent month in St. Louis, including a scene Tuesday night where three people were found dead in a home, and another was found dead a block away.
