Michael Langsdorf and Bonette Kimbrelle Meeks.
I would not recommend becoming an inner city ACO.
All the baboons have learned how to use guns, and they’re certainly not afraid to pop them off.
An ex-con originally from North Carolina has been charged with murder in the killing of a police officer at a Wellston market.
Bonette Kimbrelle Meeks, 26, was still carrying the gun he allegedly used when he was arrested Sunday afternoon, shortly after the shooting of North County Police Cooperative Officer Michael Langsdorf, authorities say.
Langsdorf had responded around 4:30 p.m. to a report that Meeks was trying to pass a bad check at Clay’s Market on Page Boulevard and Stephen Jones Avenue in north St. Louis Couny. When the veteran officer confronted Meeks, it turned into a physical fight, police say.
At a press conference, North County Coop Major Ron Martin said that Langsdorf was on top of Meeks, but the ex-con was able to pull a handgun from his waistband and clock Langsdorf in the side of the head.
With the officer stunned and face down on the floor, Meeks got to his feet and stood over him with the gun, Martin says.
Through tears, Martin described the final act: “Pointed the gun at Officer Langsdorf’s head and fired one shot.”
The bullet hit him in his neck, ricocheted off his spinal cord and exited through his chest, Martin says. The whole incident was captured on surveillance footage. Meeks fled while people in the store rushed to the officer’s aid. One woman took his police radio and called for help.
Martin says Meeks eventually confessed to shooting Langsdorf. Investigators believe he moved in January to St. Louis from the Raleigh, North Carolina, area where he had racked up a long criminal history that included violence.
He is being charged with first-degree murder, armed criminal action, resisting arrest and unlawful possession of a firearm, all felonies. He is being held without bail.
