Bullet Holes Rip-Up Car Like Swiss Cheese: Man, Woman Ambushed Inside

A double shooting in north St. Louis left a car riddled with bullets and two people hospitalized early last Monday morning.
Photos of the white sedan show nearly 30 visible bullet holes on the left side of the vehicle alone. Incredibly, the victims, a man and a woman, survived and made it to a hospital. 
The man was shot in the leg, while the woman was wounded in the back. Both are listed as being in stable condition.
The attack was launched in the 1200 block of Walton, but the car ultimately wound up in the parking lot of the White Castle at North Kingshighway and Natural Bridge. 
The shooting capped a violent weekend in the city. On June 2, 29-year-old Frencheric Nelson was fatally wounded by gunfire while driving on a Highway 40 overpass in the Midtown. Police found his car around 2:30 p.m. on the highway just west of Vandeventer (see "ESL Man Slain in His Mercedes on 40").

And later on June 2, in Soulard, a man riding a bike shot at a Joanie's Pizzeria worker who objected to the man throwing rocks at Bastille Bar and Grill. The worker returned fire, hitting the rock-thrower in the knee. The shooting was second to take place in Soulard in a matter of days, as Bastille bartender Peyton Keene was shot and killed outside the bar May 29.
