Police identify man fatally shot by St. Charles Co. officer
ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Authorities have identified a man killed last week by a St. Charles County police officer after allegedly pointing a gun at the officer.
Police said Monday that the man killed was 32-year-old Daniel Nolan of Arnold, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
The shooting happened about 2 a.m. Friday on a grade school parking lot. Police say the incident stemmed from a report of a suicidal man with a weapon. Responding officers were searching the school parking lot when one officer confronted the man, who reportedly pointed a weapon at the officer.
Officials said the officer shot Nolan, then administered first aid until paramedics arrived. Nolan died at the scene.
