• July 20: St. Louis police fatally shot Isiah Perkins, 27, a black man, in the 6100 block of Laura Avenue near Goodfellow Boulevard after police say he ran from a stolen vehicle with a gun and attempts to use a Taser to subdue him were unsuccessful.

Police said Perkins pointed a gun at them before they fired.

Perkins' family has disputed the police version of events, saying the St. Louis County man would not have tried to kill an officer.

The man driving the SUV before it crashed was charged with resisting or interfering with an arrest.
