A band of teenagers racked up a lifetime's worth of charges while driving in their south-city neighborhood shooting and robbing Sunday night, according to police.
St. Louis Metropolitan Police arrested four teens -- ranging in age from 14 to 18 -- after spotting their car just miles from a drive-by shooting that sent a 29-year-old woman to the hospital.
Their gray van matched the victim's description of her attackers, and investigators found two guns inside, police said.
Police were able to pin three additional crimes on the teens based on their investigation: a shooting into an empty house in the 7000 block of Trainor Court, a robbery in the 3600 block of Neosho Street and property damage at Keokuk Street and Spring Avenue.
Here are the teens and their charges, according to police:
Justin Campbell, 17, of the 6600 block of Alabama Avenue, faces eleven counts of armed criminal action, eight counts of aiding and abetting a person shooting a firearm, two counts of first-degree assault and a count of first-degree robbery.
Kevin Dang, 17, of the 2900 block of Hereford Street, also faces eleven counts of armed criminal action, eight counts of aiding and abetting a person shooting a firearm, two counts of first-degree assault and a count of first-degree robbery.
Jayven Moose, 18, of the 6100 block of Virginia Avenue, faces eight counts of armed criminal action and eight counts of shooting a firearm from a car at a person, car or building.
Another 14-year-old suspect is in the custody of juvenile authorities.
The suspects are held on $500,000 cash-only bond.
