Violence shook St. Louis from Wednesday into early Thursday morning.

Armed robbers, a jealous boyfriend and a gunman killed six men in separate (and likely unrelated) shootings, and police shot and injured a shoplifting suspect and two suspected car thieves who tried to ram their cars into officers.

St. Louis Metropolitan Police are on the hunt for a gunman who killed the night manager of the St. Louis Drury Inn & Suites, near Hampton Avenue and Interstate 44, during a robbery attempt before 3 a.m. early Thursday morning.

The manager, Scott Knopfel, a 50-year-old white man from the 6500 block of Southwest Avenue, was shot in the head.

The suspect, described by police as a black man in his 40s, entered the hotel lobby around 2:50 a.m., pulled out a handgun and jumped over the counter. When the robber and Knopfel struggle over opening the cash drawer, the robber shoot him in the head, tucked his gun into his waistband and walked out of the hotel.
