Off-duty St. Louis officer shoots, kills man who fired at him

This won't do anything to help the tensions in that area.

(CNN) -- An off-duty St. Louis police officer shot and killed an 18-year-old Wednesday, firing his gun 17 times, authorities said.

Angry residents damaged several police cars in response, even though police say the man fired first.

The death comes on the heels of the Michael Brown shooting two months ago in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, and just ahead of a "Weekend of Resistance" in St. Louis, where activists will push for movement in the investigation into that case.

Like Brown, the teen who was killed in Wednesday's shooting was black. The officers in both incidents are white, police said.

The difference: Brown was unarmed. In Wednesday's incident, the teen had a gun, said St. Louis police Chief Sam Dotson.

Tensions are already high in the community, and it's uncertain how the latest shooting will affect its mood.

"At the scene of yet another young man's death," tweeted St. Louis Alderman Antonio French. "This happens too often in our city. It's a crisis that we should all be concerned about."

I just read about this. I might not be able to go home this weekend after all...

another thug, this one with a gun, who opens fire on a police officer and shoots until his gun jams and then gets killed in the firefight and here come the thug's relatives saying he just had a sandwich despite the fact that he, who has a criminal record...He was under house arrest for a weapons charge....... Open season on LEO's

Yeah. But what's funny is you didn't call that kid who killed the police officer a thug. The one there's a manhunt going on right now for. What was your response?

He didn't call the lawbreakers that illegally threatened law enforcement officers with firearms in Nevada thugs either - you know the ones that came to stand with that squatter. Those were heroes to him. And I am sure he kind of worships the sovereign citizen who killed that trooper in PA as well. Those are the good guys with guns, you know?

They wouldn't have been white by any chance, would they?

It's the damnedest thing. You pick a fight with a cop, reach for his gun and blammo; or is it boom, or bang? Is this another one of them, no justice no peace things? That's what happens when those doing the bitchin can't tell the difference from a piece of justice and a piece of peace.

But his mama says he was just walked away from his house arrest on weapons charges to get some skittles... Not doing anything wrong at all . Has Crump landed on the ground yet?.

Teyonna Myers, 23, of Florissant, said Myers was her cousin.

“He was unarmed,” Teyonna Myers said. “He had a sandwich in his hand, and they thought it was a gun. It’s like Michael Brown all over again.

Well, then when that police officer heard the loud, sharp "BANGS" made by the sandwich he overreacted and shot the teen.
