Shooting in Affton Leaves One Man Dead

St Louis (KMOX) St Louis County Police have released details of a fatal shooting yesterday in Affton.

Police say they received a disturbance call about an intoxicated man-extremely agitated and acting crazy in the 98-hundred block of Arv-Ellen.

When police arrived the man produced a firearm from his waistband-raised it towards the officers and then to his own head.

Shots were exchanged and police say it’s unclear at this time if the man died from a self-inflicted wound or from a shot fired by police.

The victim is identified as 26 year old Shawn Spiros.
