St. Charles County police shoot, kill man who pointed weapon at officer


ST. CHARLES COUNTY — A St. Charles County police officer shot and killed a man early Friday who had pointed a weapon at the officer on a school parking lot, authorities said.

The shooting happened about 2 a.m. on the parking lot of Castlio Elementary School at 1020 Dingledine Road.

The man was Daniel Nolan, 33, of Arnold, said Val Joyner, a police spokeswoman.

Police have not released the name of the man or the officer who shot him. Joyner said the officer is 46 years old and has been in law enforcement for 23 years. The officer was uninjured.

Joyner said the man had called 911 telling dispatchers that he was suicidal. Police were searching near the school and an officer confronted the man, who pointed a weapon at the officer, authorities said.

The officer then shot the man and administered medical aid until paramedics arrived, authorities said. The man died at the scene.

The Castlio school, in the Francis Howell School District, is on spring break this week, district spokeswoman Jennifer Jolls said.
