Lost couple gets shot after asking for directions
Police say that yesterday afternoon, an 18-year-old female and 22-year-old male, both white, were lost in the College Hill neighborhood near North Grand Boulevard and West Florissant Avenue. 

So they asked someone on the street for directions. 

This person apparently told them to pull into an alley in the 2200 block of E. Warne, so they did. 

As soon as they entered the alley, "gunfire erupted" and the teenage girl was struck twice in her back. The male victim was not injured. 

Investigation is ongoing.

Lost yeah right!  They were buying dope and got robbed.  Hey white kids quit going to the northside for drugs.  There is a ton of predators that are waiting for you.  They know what you look like.  They know you don't know where you are.  They know you are desperate.  They know you have cash.  They know you can't call the police.  They know you wont put up a fight.  They know you are not gangsta even though your cap is tilted back and you are listening to lil wayne.


@byroncrawford Who actually goes "Why, yes, I'm sure the correct directions involve pulling into this dark alley."
