Then the shooters took a page from Agatha Christie.
The uninjured man, meanwhile, was talking to police at the fire station. While he was answering questions, the suspected shooters happened to drive by -- as close to a return to the scene of the crime as you'll get in real life -- and the man pointed them out. Off went the police, and the suspects were apprehended.
Both men remain in custody. No charges have been filed.
Two people were sitting in a parked car in the 4400 block of Red Bud Avenue in O'Fallon Park (above) around 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday when another car drove by and fired shots into their vehicle. A 28-year-old woman was shot in the head, while the 51-year-old man in the car escaped injury. He drove to the nearby fire station on Margaretta, and the woman was safely transported to the hospital where she's in stable condition.
