Man accused of pointing gun at officers faces 7 felonies
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis man charged with seven felonies is accused in court records of pointing a gun at officers and telling them, "You all have been killing too many of us."
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 29-year-old Wayne Samuels was arrested Friday without anyone being hurt and is jailed on $100,000 bond. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
Police said issues arose when two officers approached Samuels because he was sitting in a car that resembled one taken in a carjacking. Authorities later determined that the car wasn't the one being sought.
Court documents say he struggled with one of officers during a pat-down. He also is accused of pointing a gun at the officers and trying to take a passing motorist's vehicle.
