ST. LOUIS — A teenager was shot to death inside a vehicle early Monday in south St. Louis.
Davaun Winters, 17, was found shortly before 4 a.m. at a gas station at 4355 South Broadway, near Osceola Street. A 16-year-old boy in the car was uninjured.
Police said they don't know who fired the shots. Homicide detectives are investigating Winters' death. Winters lived in the 3200 block of California Avenue.
