ST. LOUIS — A man killed in a shooting at St. Louis’ Ballpark Village was a father and a newlywed celebrating his birthday.

The shooting happened Sunday night during an event at the Budweiser Brew House, part of the dining and entertainment center next to Busch Stadium. Police on Monday identified the victim as 38-year-old Corey Hall of north St. Louis County.

Shots were fired during a scuffle. Police say Hall may have been an innocent bystander. He was struck in the head. A 36-year-old man was shot in the pelvic area and is hospitalized in serious but stable condition. No arrests have been made.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Hall is the father of two girls and was married just two weeks before the shooting.

Ballpark Village is a dining and entertainment district across from the stadium where the St. Louis Cardinals play.  The Cardinals were in Pittsburgh for a game Sunday, but say in a statement they are “shocked and saddened.” The team is working with police to track down the person.

Police said there were off-duty officers and private security officers at the event.
