ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two people are dead and eight others are injured after another violent night in St. Louis.

Police say 37-year-old Quincy Hardy was fatally shot about 8 p.m. Tuesday. He was found lying in the street with a wound to his chest and pronounced dead at the scene.

Another fatal shooting happened about three hours later when 21-year-old Dominique Young and four others were shot in a drive-by shooting while standing near a porch. Young was killed and the four injured people are hospitalized in stable condition.

Four other shootings happened from late Tuesday into the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday.

St. Louis has had at least 119 homicides so far this year, up more than 60 percent from the same period a year ago.
