  • These two men have been identified as "persons of the interest" by St. Louis police.

St. Louis police are asking for help in identifying persons and vehicles of interest after a double shooting at a Dutchtown gas station parking lot last night left one man dead and another injured.

Police say a 28-year-old black man was found lying in the parking lot at 3934 South Grand at 11:02 p.m. last night. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The man's identity is being withheld pending notification of his family.

Another victim, a 26-year-old black man, was apparently also shot at the scene — a Shell station at the corner of South Grand and Alberta — and transported to the hospital. Treated for multiple gunshot wounds, he is currently in critical/stable condition.

The police "investigation revealed a large group of subjects were involved in a verbal altercation on the parking lot when gunshots were fired," the police said in a statement.

Anyone who can identify any person or vehicle shown in the photos is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS (8477). All calls are anonymous.
