One person died after being shot in downtown St. Louis at Ballpark Village on Sunday night after an argument broke out.
Two men, both in their 30s, were shot about 9:45 p.m. Sunday. One was shot in the head and taken to a hospital, where he died Monday morning, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He was later identified by St. Louis Police as Corey Hall, 38, of Spanish Lake, Missouri.
The other man was hit in the pelvic area, according to St. Louis Police. He was listed in serious but stable condition as of Monday afternoon.
Several hundred people were at a ticketed event on the rooftop of the Budweiser Brew House when an argument broke out, St. Louis Police Maj. Mary Warnecke told the Post-Dispatch. During the argument, someone pulled out a gun and fired.

As of Monday afternoon, the shooter had still not been caught, according to St. Louis Police.
Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III said they took a pause Monday to make sure they look hard at what they're doing at both Ballpark Village and Busch Stadium. But after that, it will be business as usual, he said.
"I don't think there's any way someone could have predicted this kind of violence," DeWitt said.
The ticketed event is annual and has been peaceful in the past, he said. Adding metal detectors to Ballpark Village has been discussed, as well as other enhancements to the area.
The Cardinals issued the following statement just after midnight:
"We are shocked and saddened by the senseless shooting at a private event at Ballpark Village Sunday night. There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our guests.
