Chris Hayes speculates what could turn #ShawShooting into ‘massive scandal’
South St. Louis residents took to the streets last night after an 18-year-old black male was shot and killed by an off-duty St. Louis police officer who was working security for a private firm at the time. Some claimed the man who was shot was holding a sandwich which was mistaken for a gun. However, the St. Louis Police Chief said the man not only had a gun, but fired at the off-duty officer.
