FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Shots fired into a moving vehicle left one woman dead and another wounded on Interstate 270 in north St. Louis County, authorities say.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Cpl. Dallas Thompson said the driver whose vehicle came under fire wasn’t struck by the gunfire but was injured after crashing, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

He was taken to a hospital along with his surviving passenger. Their conditions weren’t available, and the name of the dead woman hasn’t been released.


Another vehicle fled before officers arrived. St. Louis County police were alerting area police agencies about the car.

Thompson also said it’s unclear what, if any, relationship there was between the occupants of the two vehicles. Investigators don’t believe any shots came from the victims’ car, he added.
