FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — A law enforcement spokesman says a large crowd has confronted officers, yelling such things as “kill the police” after a police officer fatally shot a male in a St. Louis-area neighborhood.
St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman says shots were heard at the scene Saturday afternoon in Ferguson, a few miles north of downtown St. Louis. Schellman said “a couple hundred people” came out of nearby apartment buildings after a Ferguson officer shot the male. He didn’t identify the person or say what prompted the shooting.
Schellman says there were no reports of additional injuries at the scene, and the crowd was under control by 5 p.m. About 60 other officers initially responded to the area.
The victim has been identified via social media as 17-year-old “Mike Mike.” According to Ferguson resident La’Toya Cash, he was shot 10 times by Ferguson Police.
Mike Mike’s mother, Lesley Mcspadden, reacts:

Just found this report. Check out the interviews of witnesses in the video.
I have a strong feeling that blowback is coming. The cops will push to hard and too long and they will be caught in a war of snipers hit and run. That is the law of the jungle they are creating.
Agreed. There is a “blowback” coming. I just noticed that it has been picked up by MSM. We can expect to see a lot more on this story.
I have said for a long time that the law enforcement will sooner than later become target for what they are doing.Fighting them in the corrupt courts is a joke most of the time. Internal investigations if at all possible side with the killers and say department policy was followed and it is being look into.BS. Mean while the government is trying to disarm the citizen and it should be clear even to an idiot why! Militant cops are not there for your safety,they are there to insure you are totally controlled and yes they will kill you if given half a chance.
“Schellman said “a couple hundred people” came out of nearby apartment buildings after a Ferguson officer shot the male.”
“…the crowd was under control by 5 p.m. About 60 other officers initially responded to the area.”
If that “couple hundred people” had all been armed, that “60 other officers” would have been toast.
MSM is now reporting “near Riot”, but I expect vigils, marches, and Sharpton.
First the chokehold kill, and now this, Angel.
That frog may jump out yet.
It may. We’ll see.
Back in 30. Time to go feed Angel, Angel. LOL 😀
See ya later.
