% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

St Louis policeman kills 18-year-old, reviving Ferguson tensionsm … because sandwich looke like a gun… they feared for thier lives !!!


The Police department claim the suspect opened fire after being ordered to stop but multiple witnesses say he was only carrying a sandwich. Victim was stopped for a “pedestrian check”.

The Guardian reports:- “A St Louis city policeman shot and killed a young male suspect on Wednesday, authorities said, bringing new tension as protests continue over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager in August.

The officer had attempted to stop the fleeing suspect, the St Louis Metropolitan Police Department said on Twitter. During the chase on foot the suspect turned and fired at the officer, who returned fire and fatally wounded him, the force said.

The officer was not hurt and a gun was recovered from the scene, police said.

Some accounts of the case said the young man, named locally as Vonderrick Myers Jr, 18, had only been carrying a sandwich. Teyonna Myers, 23, of Florissant, said Myers was her cousin. “He was unarmed,” she told the St Louis Post-Dispatch. “He had a sandwich in his hand, and they thought it was a gun. It’s like Michael Brown all over again.”

Police spokeswoman Leah Freeman told CNN said the officer had been off-duty and working an approved second job when he attempted to stop Myers for a “pedestrian check”. He had been wearing his police uniform.

The Post-Dispatch reported that dozens of protesters assembled at the scene afterwards in south St Louis, within miles of the city of Ferguson, which has been racked by near-nightly protests following the fatal 9 August shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson.”

      Police just keep killing Americans of all races. When will it stop?

      TOTALLY MISLEADING HEADLINE!! I live in St.Louis and am against any form of excessive use of force by police. In this instance, the kid managed to get off at least THREE ROUNDS with his “sandwich” before being shot. Forensics revealed the presence of gunpowder residue on his hand and clothing. One of his guns was found near his body. He was known to carry handguns, thus some of his neighbors expressed fear of him. One less thug in a town getting a bad reputation from these punks.
      There are many safe areas in this region, but as in most large metro areas, there are crime hotspots, and St.Louis is no exception. What St.Louis needs is a relaxation of its gun restrictions. If more citizens carried, there’d be fewer of these punks around. They tend to gravitate to cities with restrictions, as most of us realize. What they’ve been doing in this area are gun buybacks, which worsen the problem. (Ever hear of a criminal turning in his guns for cash?)
