ST. LOUIS — Police shot and killed a man Tuesday night after he opened fire on two uniformed officers downtown, just outside the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, authorities said.

Two police officers tried to stop the man and two companions about 7 p.m. near Broadway and Locust Street because they looked suspicious, said Police Chief Joe Mokwa. The man was clutching his waistband in a way that suggested he might have been concealing a weapon, police said.
