Overview Help icon

On Friday night, two St. Louis County police officers shot and killed 23-year old Thaddeus McCarroll after he reportedly came out of his mother’s home with a knife and Bible in his hands. That’s right, one man armed with a knife and book posed a threat to an entire “Tactical Operations Unit,” and was shot not by one, but by two police officers after a whole entire hour of negotiation.
