Two police officers were involved in a shooting in St. Louis on Tuesday that left a man dead.

The shooting occurred about three miles from Ferguson, which was the scene of a controversial shooting ten days ago that left an 18-year-old dead. Michael Brown's death has led to protests and clashes with police.

There is heavy police presence and a crowd is starting to gather.

St. Louis Metro Police Chief Sam Dotson said the suspect brandished a knife at officers, and that the man appeared to be acting erratically.
