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.
