Two 17-year olds, boy and girl, wounded in St. Louis drive-by shooting

A 17-year old boy and girl were among others standing beside a St. Louis street when a black Ford Explorer drove up and fired at them. The girl was wounded in the buttocks, the boy was wounded in the arm.

A witness was quoted in the article:

"I'm kinda mad that it happened but I'm glad I wasn't hit," a visibly stunned Gill said as police officers worked at the scene. "It just really puts into reality that you can be here one second, gone the next. I mean, one moment a car pulls up, then you're running and the next thing you know, someone is shot."
