Near Ferguson, Police officer fatally shoots gun wielding Antonio Martin, 18
This fatal incident happened approximately two miles from Ferguson, now infamous given the Michael Brown, Darren Wilson incident. Many Ferguson protesters showed up almost instantly, there were at least minor confrontations and, naturally, the usual suspects are already blaming the police and crying injustice.
If 18 year-old Antonio Martin pointed a gun at the policeman, as is being reported, what is it people expect?
A Berkeley police officer fatally shot a suspect who pointed a gun at him late Tuesday, St. Louis County police said early today.
Police did not identify the person killed but Toni Martin, who was at the scene, said he was her 18-year-old son, Antonio Martin.
