Police shot and killed a black man in St. Louis on Wednesday in a killing that drew angry crowds 10 days after protesters marked the anniversary of the police shooting of an unarmed teen in nearby Ferguson.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said the shooting took place as officers were attempting to execute a search warrant in a crime-ridden neighborhood, and one suspect pointed a gun at officers who then fired at him, killing him.

Dozens of people gathered near the scene protesting the police use of deadly force, according to local media
