    DEVELOPING STORY

    Just moments ago! 18 y/o youth was shot dead in a gas station parking lot in Berkeley MO which is the town right next to Ferguson!

    It is claimed that the youth was unarmed. Situation is very tense at the scene with mother and family in attendance. Angry crowd is growing (this is Mike Brown all over again)

    EDIT: The hashtag #AntonioMartin is now trending on twitter

    What was the young man doing prior to the police shooting him? Was he committing a crime? Thought to have a weapon?

    There is not enough information right now to know. Bystanders claim that he was "shot for fitting the description" and that he was "unarmed" but as we know with the MB case a lot of misinformation gets put out at the beginning these stories.

    Ferguson PD staging for crowd control in Berkeley "there is a large crowd gathering up there"

    Requesting Ferguson PD send "as many as we can send"

    "all cars respond to Hanley and Frost"

    This is giving me a sick feeling. Hopefully, because it supposedly happened in a gas station parking lot there will be some video. But even if there is, doesn't mean it will tell the whole story.

    Crowd is split in two as police try and disperse demonstrators, as well as keep people away from the investigation area. Lots of yelling and swearing ...

    Unlike protestors, LE has an obligation to remain professional. When an officer says something like that, it's worse than ten thousand chants from protestors, because to the protestors, it validates their anger and tells them they are right to protest.

    Basically police have formed a human shield in front of the crime scene, you can hear the mother crying 'that's my baby' over and over .. so goddamn sad to hear her.
