One Dead And One Injured In Shooting At Ballpark Village In St. Louis

UPDATE: Police confirm one of the shooting victims at Ballpark Village has died, while the other is in stable, but critical condition.  The shooting occurred during a ticketed event on the rooftop level of the Budweiser Brew House when an argument broke out around 8 p.m. Sunday night.
