A St. Louis police officer was suspended indefinitely for pointing his rifle at a demonstrator in Ferguson, Missouri, and threatening to kill him during protests over the police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, according to NBC News.
The incident occurred late Tuesday and was captured on video by protesters. Brian Schellman, a spokesman for the St. Louis County police, confirmed that the officer, who was not identified but is with the St. Ann Police Department, pointed a semi-automatic assault rifle at a peaceful protester "after a verbal exchange."
