St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - City homicide detectives have little to go on in identifying the person responsible for shooting two young men, one fatally, following a quarrel Monday evening.

Investigators responded to the shooting in the 5100 block of Highland near Kingshighway around 6:50 p.m. and found a 19 year old victim shot multiple times in the abdomen and face.  He was transported to an area hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.

A 20 year old man who was with the victim was also shot in the attack.  He's hospitalized with a bullet wound to the arm.

Officials say an argument between the two victims and another person led to the gunfire.  The suspect remains unidentified after fleeing the scene.
