ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police have identified the man killed by an officer after allegedly shooting at police as they served a search warrant for drugs at a home.
Police said Wednesday that the man killed was 63-year-old Don Clark.
Police said a 40-year-old officer and colleagues were executing search warrants Tuesday night after a six-month investigation when Clark shot at them. The officer returned fire.
