Surveillance video shows suspect Antonio Martin pointing a gun at police.
The St. Louis County Police Department released this video Wednesday morning.
At the end of the video you see 18 year-old Antonio Martin raising his arm and pointing a gun at police.
Surveillance video from officer-involved shooting in Berkeley, Missouri. This video shows the suspect pointing a gun at the officer.
More information on the incident:
At approximately 11:15 PM on December 23, 2014, a police officer with the City of Berkeley was conducting a routine business check at the Mobile Gas Station located at 6800 N. Hanley when he observed two male subjects on the side of the building. The Berkeley Police Officer exited his vehicle and approached the subjects when one of the men pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officer. Fearing for his life, the Berkeley Officer fired several shots, striking the subject, fatally wounding him. The second subject fled the scene. The Berkeley Police Department requested the St. Louis County Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons Unit to handle the investigation. St. Louis County Police Detectives have recovered the deceased subject’s handgun at the scene. At this time, I cannot confirm the identity of the deceased subject. The investigation is on-going and further details will follow as they become available.
Protests broke out last night and another QuikTrip was looted after the police shooting.
Anonymous insists no gun was at the scene of the shooting.
They need to look at the above video – It’s clear that Martin pulled a gun on police.
