Victim in police shooting ID'd

St. Louis – St. Louis police have identified the man shot and killed by officers responding to a 911 call.

Forty-year-old Antonio Hogans was shot six times at his house in the 1500 block of Salisbury around 7:30 Monday night. The officers were responding to reports of shots fired at the residence, apparently the result of an altercation over drugs or drug money. Police found crack cocaine in Hogans's pants pocket.

Hogans was shot after he fired at the officers while fleeing the house. Investigators aren't sure whether Hogans believed the officers were the intruder, or was running for help or away.

The two officers are on administrative leave, which is standard in officer-involved shootings. They have both been with the department since July 2008.
