Dispatcher: Several shot in St. Louis suburb

WELLSTON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a St. Louis-area shooting that a dispatcher says killed one person and wounded at least two others.

The dispatcher did not offer additional details about the gunfire Thursday afternoon in Wellston and directed calls to that suburb's police department. Calls by The Associated Press to that agency in the 2,300-resident St. Louis County community went unanswered.

Area television stations reported the gunfire broke out around the Wellston Food Market.
