ST. LOUIS (AP) — A man was shot to death and three others were injured — including an infant — in a brazen daytime ambush on a north St. Louis street, police said.

The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon along Kingshighway in the Mark Twain neighborhood, television station KMOV reported. Police called to the scene found a sport utility vehicle riddled with bullets and four people inside.

A man in the SUV died, police said, and a woman, a 14-year-old girl and a 6-month-old infant were all taken to hospitals. Police said the infant was grazed by a bullet. Their names and medical conditions were not immediately released.

Investigators said the victims’ SUV had been blocked in on the street by a vehicle in front of it and another vehicle behind it. More than one person jumped from the rear vehicle and opened fire on the victims before speeding off, police said.

No arrests have been reported in the case.
