FERGUSON, Mo. -- A large crowd of angry residents confronted police officers Saturday afternoon, yelling such things as "kill the police" after an officer fatally shot a male in a St. Louis-area neighborhood.

Officer Brian Schellman, spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, said "a couple hundred" people came out of apartment buildings after an officer with the Ferguson Police Department shot and killed the male. Schellman did not identify the person who was shot or say what prompted the shooting.

John Gaskin, a member of the St. Louis County NAACP, called on the FBI's assistance was needed "to protect the integrity of the investigation."

"With the recent events of a young man killed by the police in New York City and with Trayvon Martin and with all the other African-American young men that have been killed by police officers ... this is a dire concern to the NAACP, especially our local organization," Gaskin said.



Gaskin said officials in the organization spoke with St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, who told them the male was a teenager and had been shot twice.

Schellman declined to give any information about the male who was shot, including his age or race, because police were still trying to notify relatives.

  1. Perhaps it was misstated with regards to Trayvon Martin in that he was not shot by a police officer but a police officer wannabe.

  2. Kill a person and go on vacation? No wonder so many Pigs likes to kill.
    If I make an honest mistake in my job, they just fire me on the spot. I guess for these Pigs to schedule vacation, they just simply has to kill and most likely the rest of the Pigs department with hired guns on tax payers money will make sure fight the dead and prove him dead wrong.

  3. They should not have simply yelled; they should have killed the kops.

  4. The end of this sort of garbage is getting closer, me thinks. One day soon there will be a backlash, and it ain't gonna be purty.
