After Stacey Adell, 46, was shot in the abdomen yesterday night, he reportedly rushed to a gas station in north St. Louis looking for help.
But he couldn't find it in time.
Adell, who lived on Natural Bridge Avenue near Fairground Park, died last night, making him the seventeenth homicide victim in 2013 in the city of St. Louis -- and the latest to fall to gun violence.
At this point, there have been no arrests in the shooting are there are don't appear to be any suspects. The police incident report has few details, too, except that he was shot in the abdomen and was pronounced dead shortly after he was taken to a local hospital:
