    St. Louis cop kills armed man six years after another officer shot him: cops
    An unidentified Sat. Louis officer shot and killed Ledarius D. Williams Tuesday. The 23-year-old was armed, ran from cops when they approached him and fought with the officers over his gun once they caught up to him, police said. Williams was released from prison in March after serving time for pointing a gun at an officer in 2009 — an incident that prompted the cop to shoot in him the leg.

    [​IMG] KTVI A St. Louis cop shot and killed Ledarius Williams Tuesday after a struggle over the suspect's gun, police said.
    A St. Louis cop shot and killed an armed felon Tuesday — six years after another officer shot the man in the leg.

    Ledarius D. Williams was armed and struggled with two patrol cops before one of the officers fired, St. Louis Police said.

    The 23-year-old was released from prison in March after serving six years for assaulting a cop. In 2009, he pointed a gun at two officers, prompting one of them to shoot his leg, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

    On Tuesday, the cops approached Williams as they patrolled the Dutchtown neighborhood. When the 23-year-old saw the officers, he ran, Chief Sam Dotson said.

    The two cops — a 24-year-old and a 29-year-old — followed, and found him hiding in some bushes. One of the cops noticed the suspect had a gun, and the three struggled for the weapon, which had been stolen in 2013, police said.

    “If I wanted to describe a struggle for your life, one of the officers today is covered in mud, literally head to toe, where they were rolling on the ground in the mud while trying to gain control of (Williams’) gun,” Dotson said.

    Two cops were patrolling the city's Dutchtown neighborhood when they spotted the suspect with a gun, police said.
    One of the cops shot at Williams, killing him.

    Police did not say which of the two cops shot Williams. The officer has been placed on leave while the force investigates.

    In 2009, two other cops stopped Williams because he had a gun. The officers demanded he put it down, but he pointed it them instead, police said.

    The officers opened fire, hitting him in the leg. He was charged with two counts of assault on a law enforcement officer and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. He was released last March.

    A group of about 40 people including neighbors and protesters gathered at the shooting scene Tuesday.


    Neighbor Maria Gordon said she rushed home from work when her friends called to say her house was on the news. She worried police shot one of her two sons.

    “It’s just sad,” the 52-year-old told the newspaper. “Now my husband’s got to clean the blood off the sidewalk in my gangway.”

    In August, a Missouri officer shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb. The shooting ignited passionate, sometimes violent protests, which intensified after a grand jury declined to indict the cop.

    Yeah, I noticed that there was nothing in the article about that. I'm guessing that at least one of the cops is blaek.
    I like the homeowner bitching about having to hose the blood off of her sidewalk too.

    It's a shame now that officers have to go a more dangerous route in disarming a black. It use to be frowned upon wrestling with a perp and his firearm due to the risk. It use to be stand back, give verbal commands, if the black doesn't drop the firearm you shoot em.
