(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) Those who live in the area of 25th and Duncan have reacted to the news of Wednesday night's shooting, in which an 18 year-old male was killed. Many of them have shared about what they saw and heard on social media. Neighbors say that more than 20 gunshots were heard in the area at the time, and one person shared pictures of what appear to be bullet holes that passed through his house.

After a mostly cloudy day with below average temperatures on Saturday, the weather does not change much heading into Sunday but we could see some on-and-off showers throughout the day.
