Ferguson Police Kill Another Black Suspect (Was Armed)

From a hoping for more outrage St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

UNEASY NIGHT: A police shooting, more tear gas in Ferguson

Aug. 13, 2014

At about 1 a.m., a St. Louis County Police officer shot and critically wounded a man who police said pointed a handgun at the officer near the intersection of West Florissant and Chambers Road.

The shooting happened near Chambers and Sheffingdell Court, not far from the site of protests against police over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. The location is less than a mile from the QuikTrip on West Florissant that was looted and burned Sunday night.

Wow. What are the odds? Could that be it’s a ‘sketchy’ neighborhood?

Police said they received a call reporting about four to five men in the area armed with shotguns and wearing ski masks. They also got reports of shots fired in the area. Police officers arrived and saw "multiple subjects running," said police spokesman Officer Brian Schellman.

It was probably just some of the innocent hijinks that the kids get up to these days.

An officer approached one of the men and he pulled a handgun on the officer who then fired, Schellman said. Police said they recovered the handgun at the scene. The man was taken to a hospital.

This report seems a little incomplete. After all, there are no quotes from friends or neighbors or family members about what a good person the victim was.

Officers cleared the shooting scene shortly before 5 a.m. By 6:30 a.m., the streets were quiet and school buses were running…

For now. But just wait until ‘the community’ wakes up and hears this latest news.
