ST. LOUIS — A 21-year-old man was killed outside a north St. Louis County bar early Tuesday in the second fatal shooting near the business since November.

Police say the unidentified victim was killed during a gun battle between two vehicles outside Cuetopia II Billiards & Bar on West Florissant Avenue. The shooting took place soon after the club's 1 a.m. closing time.

A police spokesman told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) that the killer fired the shots from a white SUV, with a passenger in the victim's vehicle returning fire. Both vehicles then drove away. The victim showed up at a St. Louis hospital, where he died.

Twenty-eight-year-old Brandon Ferguson was killed in late November outside Cuetopia during a parking lot fight that also occurred at closing time.
