ST. LOUIS > Shooting victims are identified * Two men shot and killed Thursday night at a car wash were identified on Friday as Cortez Rossell, 26, of the 16300 block of Hampden Place in north St. Louis County and Vurrie McCole, 43, of the 4900 block of Aubert Court in St. Louis.

The pair were fatally shot about 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the WestSide Car Wash, 1911 Goodfellow Boulevard, police said.

A third man, 38, was found in the area of Cote Brilliante Avenue and Goodfellow Boulevard, suffering from a graze wound to the face. He refused medical treatment. That man told police the two who were slain had been inside the car wash when he heard shots. He said he didn't see who fired.

Rossell was found nearby, on the sidewalk in the 5700 block of Lotus Avenue, with wounds in the head, back and side. McCole was found on the car wash floor, shot in the face.
