BERKELEY, MO (KTVI)- A large crowd of nearly 300 protesters gathered at the Mobil Gas Station following a fatal officer involved shooting. The shooting occurred around 11p.m. Tuesday night at the store located at 6800 North Hanley Road. Things continued to heat up as people surrounded a squad car. Objects were reportedly thrown at a police vehicle.  A Hazelwood squad car also had its rear window smashed.

The situation escalated further as police tried to break up a scuffle.

Several people were on the ground in handcuffs. Police tried to keep people back and set up a perimeter. During the scuffle it appears that someone threw fireworks near a gas pump.  After that explosion, our crews saw police use pepper spray to keep crowds at bay.

Right now, police from several municipalities around St. Louis County are still on the scene.
