ST. LOUIS   •   Police on Thursday released more details about the Christmas Eve shooting downtown that left one man dead and three wounded.

The man found shot to death in the street near the 7-Eleven in the 200 block of North 17th Street was Christopher Johnson, 20, of St. Louis. He was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene.

He was shot when two men got out of a car in the 1600 block of Olive Street about 5:30 p.m. and opened fire on the four victims, who were all near each other.

Two men were critically wounded – a man, 54, was shot in the face and another man, 32, was shot in the chest.

Another man, 35, was shot in the buttocks. He was expected to survive.

The 7-Eleven was closed on Thursday. A sign on the door said it would re-open at 11 p.m.

No arrests had been made.

Johnson lived in the 4400 block of Bircher Boulevard in St. Louis, police said.
