St. Louis, MO (KTRS) Faith leaders and protesters are calling for answers in the wake of a fatal police shooting in north St. Louis.
Dozens faith leaders and activists gathered Thursday morning for a prayer vigil to remember 15-year-old Jorevis Scruggs. This was followed by a protest Thursday night.
Police say Scruggs was shot by an officer Tuesday after pointing a gun at police.
Police-involved shootings in the St. Louis region and across the nation have faced increased scrutiny since 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson officer in 2014.
