On the heels of protest, unrest and uproar surrounding an officer involved shooting of an unarmed man, police say they have shot a knife-wielding man in St. Louis. This happened only miles away from where Michael Brown was killed on August 9th.
St. Louis police shot and killed a 23 year-old man they say was acting "erratically" and carrying a knife up and down the street.
Authorities say the man lunged at officers with the knife and told them to shoot him.
The situation is still unfolding just outside of Ferguson where Michael Brown's shooting death has led to days of violent protests, dozens of arrests and a few shootings.
