Two people were shot during an event at Ballpark Village in downtown St. Louis, directly across from Busch Stadium, on Sunday night, reported the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
One of the victims was shot in the head and did not react, and the other was shot in the thigh. Both were taken to the hospital. The shooter has escaped the police and is still free, according to Post-Dispatch.
St. Louis Mary police, Mary Warnecke, said several hundred people had been to a meeting on the roof of Budweiser's brewery building when a quarrel broke out around 8:00 pm. Someone pulled a gun and fired. She said it is believed that the people met were uninvolved bystanders. Both are men in their 30s.
Ballpark Village is located directly across from Busch Stadium and is an integral part of any home game of St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals played a game against the pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday. They will play at home against the Chicago White Sox next Tuesday.
