JENNINGS, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County police say the man killed in a drive-by shooting that left two children injured was a 19-year-old from Bridgeton.

Police on Friday identified the victim as Ryan Hampton. He died Thursday when two gunmen fired into a moving vehicle. After the shooting, the victim’s car and the sport utility vehicle in which the gunmen were riding collided.

Hampton suffered one gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the hospital. Two of his relatives, a 9-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, suffered minor injuries.

Police said the gunmen ran from their disabled SUV armed with rifles. No arrests have been made.
