Police Shoot Black Teen at Missouri Gas Station

An 18-year-old black man was shot and killed by police at a gas
station late on Tuesday in a St. Louis suburb near where unarmed teen
Michael Brown was killed by a white officer in August, police and
local media said.

Police said the man pointed a handgun at an officer who approached him
and another man at a gas station in the suburb of Berkeley.

"Fearing for his life, the Berkeley Officer fired several shots,
striking the subject, fatally wounding him," St. Louis County Police
Department spokesman Brian Schellman said in a statement.

Berkeley is minutes away from the suburb of Ferguson, where police
officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown in August, a killing that
ignited protests across the country against police methods.

About 200 people marched in New York on Tuesday, defying Mayor Bill de
Blasio's call for protests to be suspended after two police officers
were killed in their patrol car on Saturday in an apparent revenge
