***UPDATED STORY 11:05 a.m. Monday***
The two people who were apparently shooting at each other early yesterday (sun) morning, but hit a young woman instead, are still on the loose.
Garrett Murray of Columbia, and Jeremy Ruff of the Saint Louis area, allegedly traded shots from their vehicles near Rangeline and the Business Loop. A 22-year-old woman, who police believe was an innocent bystander, got shot in the back twice while in a separate car, and was seriously injured. She’s now in stable condition. Both Murray and Ruff face multiple charges, including Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Armed Criminal Action.
