They were transported to a local hospital and listed in stable condition.

At 8:50 p.m., police were called to the Baden neighborhood of north St. Louis to a shooting near N. Broadway and Halls Ferry Road. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a 48-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his lower back.
