Man shot after pointing gun at Ferguson, Missouri police

FERGUSON, Mo. — After several days of protests and riots and looting, people are tense in Ferguson, Missouri where a teen was shot and killed by police.

Around 1 Wednesday morning, four men in ski masks  and carrying shotguns approached a crowd of people and several shots were fired.

Police chased the suspected shooter who reportedly pointed his gun at the officer.

The man was shot by police and is in critical condition.

The officer was not hurt and the suspect’s gun has been recovered.

An hour earlier, a woman was shot in the head during a drive-by shooting.

KTVI-TV reports there are concerns about the new Black Panther Party trying to start trouble in St. Louis.

    I previously said: let the idiot panthers come in & tear gas them as soon as they get there! ID the fools on the news footage & bust them too. Enough is enough! The law enforcement & higher ups need to get a grip on these idiots & show them they are not scared……………….unless they are!!!

    AND EVERYONE WONDERS WHY COPS ARE SO QUICK TO PULL THE TRIGGER….ITS THESE IDIOTS RUNNING AROUND AND RIOTING WITH SHOTGUNS THAT CAUSES SO MANY “REACTIVE” SHOOTINGS. THESE PEOPLE ARE OUTRAGED OVER THE BLACK TEEN BEING KILLED, WHEN AT THE END OF THE DAY IT IS THESE PEOPLE WHO CAUSED THE BOYS DEATH INDIRECTLY IN THE FIRST PLACE.. COPS DEAL WITH THESE ARMED THUGS ALL THE TIME AND DAILY.THEY HAVE A VERY SPLIT SECOND TO MAKE A DECISION THAT ULTIMATELY MEANS THEM GOING HOME TO THEIR FAMILY IN THEIR CAR AT THE END OF THE DAY AND NOT IN A WOODEN BOX.MISTAKES ARE MADE AND IT IS VERY VERY TRAGIC,

    Another reason to steal, loot and pillage, they don’t want to be annoyed by officers then they cry where are the police. The police cannot win this fight, what they need to do is take all the police off the streets and let them fight each other and do their own justice. Maybe when the people have had enough of all the looting and pillaging they will appreciate a police officer that much more. God bless the police, and the people who are law abiding.

    I have been saying this for years, we should just build a big wall all the way around Memphis and keep all the crime inside the city. Remove everyone that doesn’t want to fight to the death and just let them all Purge themselves. Once they are all gone, we can come back in and clean everything up. They are doing it anyways.
