ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are investigating after a man was fatally shot in the middle of the day in the middle of downtown.

The shooting happened just before 11 a.m. Friday on Ninth Street, near Citygarden, an outdoor garden area that is popular among tourists. Police say the shooter and the victim were acquaintances involved in an argument.

No one else was hurt but a bullet went into a nearby store and struck a mannequin.

Police on bikes were nearby when the shooting occurred and the gunman surrendered without incident.

The name of the victim has not been released.
