A man believed to be in his 20s was killed and five others were injured in an early morning shooting in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, police said on Sunday.

In a social media post, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said officers responded to the scene of a shooting around 2:30 a.m. CT.

An initial investigation found that a fight purportedly broke out between women, police said. At some point, men became involved and firearms were pulled, police said on social media. At least one firearm was recovered at the scene, though it was still too early to know if it was involved in the shooting.
