St. Louis police fatally shoot knife-wielding suspect | Fox News
When it rains it pours...St. Louis police fatally shot a knife-wielding suspect Tuesday after they said the suspect refused to put the weapon down and tried to attack them, Fox2Now.com reported.
The incident took place about 2.6 miles from the Ferguson protests, and occurred at about 12:30 p.m. The suspect reportedly entered a convenience store and showed the store owner his knife and the two got into a dispute.
St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson told Fox2Now.com that the man yelled at officers “shoot me now” several times. This account was reportedly backed up by several witnesses.
This one, on the surface, looks pretty cut and dried but in light of what is happening there already I fear that it will only stoke the fires.
