UPDATE 14:00 12/6/17:  The victim died from her injuries Tuesday evening with family by her side.  The family is from out of state and has requested donations to fly her body back home.  Our hearts and prayers are with the family at this time.

Around 20:00 last night, someone in a vehicle allegedly opened fire at another vehicle on westbound 270 between 367 and Old Halls Ferry, causing emergency crews to close all westbound lanes and multiple ramps at the 270/367 interchange for approximately two hours.

If you had noticed, the admins broke the news within minutes of the incident because on a normal basis 367 is the location where the traffic from the Clark Bridge commute and the normal 270 commute starts to mingle. Had an incident happened during a peak period, the backup would easily went into Illinois. This incident caused westbound 270 to back up to Bellefontaine, and caused major delays on the ramp to Dunn Road from northbound 367 as Dunn Road remained open and a lot of people went straight for that option. Throughout the livestream the detour route that was emphasized was Parker Road as it will get you back to Old Halls Ferry and New Florissant, where you can then return to 270.

This incident has summoned the Major Case Squad

No other details have been revealed since the lanes reopened.
