ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Police say that three men are dead after a shooting in west St. Louis at around 11:15am. The shooting happened a a Laclede Gas work site in the 5900 block of Minerva in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood. Investigators are calling the shooting a murder suicide.

Police say the suspect walked up to one of the workers at a job site and shot and killed him. The other worker came out of the backhoe to see what was happening. The suspect then shot and killed that worker. He then turned the gun on himself. There are no signs of a struggle. Investigators say they have not seen anything like this shooting.

One of the workers was in his 20's and the other was in his 50's. Police say the suspect was a man in his 30's or 40's.

Police say witnesses called police about the shooting. People in the neighborhood recognised the suspect but did not know him. The shooter has not yet been identified.

FOX 2 asked St. Louis police if this was a hate crime. Police say the only racial aspect to the shooting is that the suspect was black and the two Laclede Gas workers were white.


One of the shooting victims was initially taken to the hospital in critical condition. The man died as a result of his injuries.

A woman who lives on the block says the workers were digging to connect a meter to a nearby home.
