One man is dead and two others are hospitalized after a shooting in the St. Louis suburb of Wellston.

St. Louis County Police spokesman Rick Eckhard says officers were called to a house Thursday afternoon where they found one man dead. One of the injured men was found in the street about two blocks away, while the other made it to a small market about four blocks away and sought help.

Police said they didn't know the cause of the dispute, nor the identities of the victims. Eckhard said the injured men were expected to survive.

Eckhard said police don't yet know whether the shooter was among the victims, but he added that police weren't conducting a manhunt.

Detectives were at a hospital waiting to talk to the injured men.
