A Missouri man was involved in a shooting after his rifle was stolen from him, resulting in several people being wounded.
The incident, which took place in northern St. Louis, after a man open-carrying a cased rifle entered the Wellston food market.
While the man posed no threat to anyone while going about his business, he was robbed of his rifle.

During the shootout, two women were inadvertently hit, as well as the assailant.
A third man is believed to have been involved as well, but fled the scene after shooting the robber.
The victim, the man who was robbed, also fled the scene.
