ST. LOUIS (KMOX)- St. Louis Police are investigating a deadly Friday night shooting near Soldan High School, after a disturbance broke out at a football jamboree.

Police Chief John Hayden says an 8-year-old girl was killed and three other people were wounded in the shooting, "What we need would be for people to tell police what happened, so we can hold some people accountable."

It happened around 8 PM in the 1100 block of Union.

Police say two 16-year-old males are both in stable condition, and a woman in her 40's suffered a leg wound that has her in critical but stable condition.
