According to police, witnesses observed the victim wrestling with two black males near the front door of a residence when they heard a single gunshot around 9:30 p.m. The suspects, wearing masks, fled the scene. The victim -- described only as a Hispanic male in his mid-30s -- was pronounced dead at an area hospital several hours later at 2:45 a.m. October 9.
St. Louis homicide detectives have yet to release the identification of a man shot Monday night in the 3400 block of Pennsylvania (above) near Cherokee Street.
