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.
