ST. LOUIS (AP) Four people, including a 2-year-old girl, are injured after being shot while sitting on their porch in St. Louis. All four are expected to recover. Besides the girl, two women and a man were injured in the incident around 1:15 p.m. yesterday.
Police say the victims were on the porch when the shooter came around a corner and shot from 40 to 50 feet away. The suspect used
a shotgun with bird shot for ammunition.
Police spokesman Harry Hager says that if the suspect would have
used buck shot _ a heavier substance than bird shot _ the victims
likely would have died.
