Woman shot and robbed in near Cardinal Glennon
Police say a 27-year-old white female was shot in the face this morning just southwest of Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.
It happened around 6 a.m., as the woman was walking out to her vehicle on the
1600 block of South Spring Street.
The suspect -- described as a black male in his mid-twenties, about six feet tall with dreadlocks -- walked up to her.
He grabbed her purse, shot her in the face, then took off running.
The victim was taken to a local hospital in "critical/stable" condition.
Investigation, as always, is ongoing.
