Police shot and killed another black man in Missouri

  • Police shot and killed another black man in Missouri as protests against the killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed African American teenager, continued.

    The 23-year-old man, identified as Kajieme Powell, was reportedly brandishing a knife in a black neighborhood of St Louis. Police said he did not obey their orders and was shot when he was at a distance of four feet from two officers.

    Eyewitnesses and local residents, however, alleged that the officers had used excessive force.
