JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) - A man was killed and a woman injured in a shooting at a suburban St. Louis apartment complex, police there said.

The shooting happened Monday afternoon in Jennings, police said. Officers called to the area found a man in his 40s at a gas station on Jennings Station Road and found the woman, also in her 40s, at a nearby apartment complex.

Police said both had suffered gunshot wounds. Investigators believe the two were shot at the apartment complex, and that the man ran to the gas station after being shot.

The man later died at a hospital, police said, and the woman was being treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening. The victims’ names were not immediately released, and police had not announced any suspects or arrests by Tuesday morning.
