(St. Louis, MO) -- Video released by the St. Louis Police Department is triggering more questions about the use of deadly force. Two officers shot and killed the 25-year-old African American man Tuesday when he ignored commands to drop a knife. The police video shows the suspect yelling at the officers and moving toward them. The two officers fired a total of 12 shots. The shooting came as tensions are already running high over the shooting death of Michael Brown in the nearby town of Ferguson by police officer Darren Wilson.
