Another black male shot to death in St. Louis leaves locals Stunned





Another fatal police shooting of a teenager in Missouri, this time in south St. Louis, led to hours of protests overnight Wednesday and into this morning as an angry crowd gathered after news spread across social media.

Authorities said today that a off-duty St. Louis police officer shot and killed a black 18-year-old who fired at him Wednesday night. The officer wasn't injured and his race wasn't immediately disclosed, but CNN reported that he is white. The killing led to an angry demonstration, with some protesters likening it to the Aug. 9 killing of an unarmed black teen Michael Brown by white officer Darren Wilson in nearby Ferguson.
