(NEW YORK POST) BERKELEY, Mo. — A suburban St. Louis police officer shot and killed a man who pointed a gun at him at a gas station, police said.
Scuffles broke out early Wednesday between police officers and a vocal crowd of several hundred people who taunted the officers at the scene of the late Tuesday shooting in Berkeley, Missouri. Police have not released details of any arrests. Berkeley is just a few miles from Ferguson, where a white police officer fatally shot black 18-year-old Michael Brown in August.
