ST. LOUIS  — Gunmen in two vehicles opened fire on a crowd late Tuesday night along the St. Louis riverfront, injuring four men, police said.

Police had no suspects or motive in the shooting, which happened about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 700 block of Leonor K. Sullivan, near Poplar Street. 

The victims, all stable at a hospital, ranged in age from 23 to 27. Police said one man was shot in the back; another was hit in the abdomen. Police did not release specifics about the injuries to the other two victims.
