ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A suspect is dead after an officer-involved shooting in north St. Louis, according to police.

According to St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson, authorities arrived at a home in the 1240 block of Walton to execute a search warrant around 11:30 Wednesday morning.

When police approached the home, two suspects were seen running out of the back armed with guns. Officers ordered the suspects to drop their weapons, at which time one of the suspects, Mansur Ball-Bey,18, stopped and pointed a gun at police, authorities said. The two officers then fired a total of four gunshots towards Mansur Ball-Bey,  according to police.

After the officers fired gunshots, Dotson said, Mansur Ball-Bey, continued running until he collapsed.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Dotson said the gun recovered from the deceased suspect was reported stolen out of Rolla, Missouri.

The second suspect that was seen running from the home has not been captured. Police have not released any details about the suspect other than he is in his mid-to-late teens.

After the shooting, officers returned to the home and took the remainder of the home’s occupants into custody. According to police, an undisclosed amount of crack cocaine was inside the home. Officers also recovered four guns, including the gun of the suspect that was fatally shot.

No officers were injured during the incident. Both officers have been placed on administrative leave, per department policy. 

Dotson said officers were in the area because there has been a lot of crime reported there lately. He referenced a 93-year-old Tuskegee Airman that was robbed and carjacked Sunday, along with a woman who was fatally shot nearby.
