Keith Rose, who was among the protesters, said he saw the incident and could see the driver of the auto as he made his way down Manchester Avenue.

St. Louis Police say a suspect has been charged in Tuesday morning's shooting on the northside that involved a city police officer and left a transgender suspect dead.

Police arrived at the scene to find a man had been stabbed.

He said the driver, who he described as a middle-aged man, at one point stopped his auto for a few seconds before accelerating gradually and driving into the group at Manchester and Sarah Street.

'Finally, we demand apologies from the St. Louis Police Department and the police officers that murdered Kiwi Herring, ' it said.

The protesters then surrounded his auto, slammed on it with their hands, and hit the vehicle with a flag pole, according to Jackson.

St Louis Police Chief Lawrence O'Toole told reporters Herring was armed with a large knife and wounded one officer.

Herring reportedly leaves behind a wife and three children.

Responding units located an unidentified male victim, 28, in an apartment unit suffering from severe lacerations to his torso, face and arms.

The injured officer and his partner both fired their weapons, striking the suspect multiple times, killing the person.

However, the police described Herring as a man in their reports, although she identifies as woman, sparking outrage within the St. Louis community.
