A band of teenagers racked up a lifetime's worth of charges while driving in their south-city neighborhood shooting and robbing Sunday night, according to police.

St. Louis Metropolitan Police arrested four teens -- ranging in age from 14 to 18 -- after spotting their car just miles from a drive-by shooting that sent a 29-year-old woman to the hospital.

Their gray van matched the victim's description of her attackers, and investigators found two guns inside, police said.

Police were able to pin three additional crimes on the teens based on their investigation: a shooting into an empty house in the 7000 block of Trainor Court, a robbery in the 3600 block of Neosho Street and property damage at Keokuk Street and Spring Avenue.
