Security guard shoots man at Ferguson apartment complex
FERGUSON (AP) — Police in Ferguson, Missouri, are investigating after a private security guard shot an armed man at the same apartment complex where Michael Brown was killed by a police officer in August 2014.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the shooting happened Tuesday evening at Canfield Green apartments. Police Chief Delrish Moss said a man tried to scare a loose dog away from children when he and the dog owner got into a heated exchange. Moss said the dog owner pointed a gun at the man.
A security guard shot the dog owner when he refused to drop his weapon. Moss said the man is hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
Some people got into a heated exchange with an officer investigating the shooting, but no arrests were made.
