ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A man is hospitalized after he was shot near the Rock Road Metrolink station yesterday.

Pagedale police Captain Eddie Simmons says it began as an argument on the train platform, which in turn resulted in one man being shot in the thigh.

Captain Simmons says shootings there are not a common occurrence.

“There’s no way that you can prevent shootings and homicides from happening at some point in time, but what you can do is be proactive and have your officers in view,” he says.                  

The victim's wounds are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police will be checking surveillance video from the Metrolink platform as they try to identify the shooter.
