The spotlight is back on Missouri:
An off-duty police officer working for a private security firm in St. Louis fatally shot an 18-year-old black man who police claim opened fire during a foot chase.
Conflicting reports have emerged since the shooting, but police claim that the teen was armed and fired at least three shots at the officer before his gun jammed. Witnesses and people who identified themselves as the teen's family claim that the the young man was holding a sandwich when he was shot some 16 times, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Related, the protests in Ferguson never stopped:
The protest was the first of dozens of events planned in greater St. Louis as part of an organized demonstration dubbed “Ferguson October.” Thousands are expected to travel to the protests, which will culminate with a massive civil disobedience action on Monday.
