December 27, 2019 GMT

HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) — Police area searching for suspects who opened fire on a car on a busy St. Louis County interstate highway, leaving three people injured.

KMOV-TV reports that the shooting happened just before noon Friday on the same stretch of Interstate 270 where a man was fatally shot in a rolling gun battle two weeks ago.

In the latest incident, someone shot into a gold Buick at I-270 and Lindbergh in Hazelwood. Officers found two men and a woman shot. They are hospitalized but a condition report was not immediately available.

Westbound lanes were closed for nearly two hours during the investigation, reopening at around 1:30 p.m. Police are searching for a black SUV they believe the suspects were in.

No arrests have been made in the shooting that occurred on Dec. 13 that killed a 20-year-old man.
