St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - A 37 year old man died this morning after he was shot in the head while answering the front door of his south St. Louis home late Monday.

Authorities say the victim went to the door around 9:35 p.m. and was greeted by two men wearing dark masks and pointing a gun at the victim.

A witness inside the home in the 3400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue said he heard the gunfire, then fled to another part of the house to take cover.

The victim who answered the door was then found on the floor with a bullet wound to the head.  The two intruders fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Police say the victim was transported to the hospital where he died of his injuries early Tuesday morning.  The victims name has not yet been released, pending notification of his family.

Police say they do not have any description on the attackers at this time and are asking anyone with information in the crime to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.
