African-American man fatally shot by police near Ferguson
A 23-year-old African-American man was shot and killed by police just outside of Ferguson, MO on Tuesday afternoon. The man reportedly charged at law enforcement while brandishing a knife, although the details of the incident remain murky. Violence is continuing to escalate in the St. Louis suburb, with law enforcement using force against both residents and journalists, including RT’s Anastasia Churkina. She was one of several journalists caught in the chaos Monday night, and gives the details to RT’s Ameera David.
