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.
