ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police say a black 18-year-old armed with a gun was shot and killed by two officers who were serving a search warrant at a home.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says two suspects fled from the home around noon Wednesday on the city’s north side before the 18-year-old turned and pointed a handgun at the officers, who shot him.

Dotson says the wounded suspect died at the scene. In a statement Wednesday night, police identified him as Mansur Ball-Bey of St. Louis. Authorities are searching for the second suspect. The statement said he is believed to be in his mid- to late teens.

Both officers, who are white, were unharmed, according to a police report.

Dotson said four guns and crack cocaine were recovered at the scene.

A man and woman who were inside the home were arrested.

  1. Good job, officers! Well done, and glad you’re both safe so you can return to your families. The cowards in the press as well as the race baiting hate mongers will no doubt persecute you, but know this – the masses support you.
