Authorities say 25-year-old Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks was shot and killed Monday morning after a massive manhunt.  A Kentucky state police spokesman, says 25-year-old Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks was shot by police  when he refused to drop his weapon. He died a shot time later after being taken to a hospital.

According to investigators, Trooper Joseph Ponder was conducting a traffic stop Sunday night when Johnson-Shanks fled.  After a chase, he allegedly stopped his car abruptly and fired several shots into Ponder’s cruiser.

According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, his social media site features a photo collage of Martin Luther King, Malcom X, and Michael Brown. Johnson-Shanks also reposted photos of memorial sites for Michael Brown and others killed by police, asking “Why is it taking so long to arrest those officers.”
