June 27, 2021 GMT

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Police are looking for a gunman who was seen on surveillance cameras in the area after a man was fatally shot in a St. Louis suburb Sunday morning.

The shooting happened around 8 a.m. inside an apartment at the Park Ridge Aparments complex in Ferguson, Police Chief Jason Armstrong said. Officers found a wounded man inside one of the apartments and he was taken to a hospital where he died.

Investigators believe the shooting happened after an altercation between the 27-year-old victim and another man. A third person who was in the apartment at the time of the shooting is being interviewed by police.

Sunday’s shooting was the second one at the apartment complex in the two days. Around noon Saturday, a man was shot in the ankle at the apartment building and taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury. Investigators do not believe the two shootings are linked.
