Masked gunmen fatally shoot 15-year-old St. Louis girl

     (AP) – St. Louis police are investigating the shooting death of a

15-year-old girl.

     Two masked gunmen with assault rifles fired at the girl as she sat in a car

Tuesday night. A St. Louis Public Schools spokesman on Wednesday identified the

girl as Toni Stevenson, who was a sophomore at Northwest Academy of Law High

School, a city magnet school that focuses on preparing students for careers in

law and law enforcement. She was on her way home from a high school basketball

game at the time of the shooting.

     Police say Stevenson was shot multiple times and was not conscious or

breathing by the time officers arrived. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not disclosed a possible motive. No arrests have been made.
