Looter dies trying to rob Fedex truck in St. Louis

A looter died early Saturday morning after he was filmed being dragged by an 18-wheel FedEx truck that was surrounded by protesters in downtown St. Louis.

Video of the incident shows several protesters approach the large white truck.

The driver of the truck was forced to take a detour after protests shut down Interstate 70.

He then started driving down North Broadway toward Cass Avenue until he was forced to stop due to the presence of a large group of people.

While he was stopped, several individuals began taking packages and items from his truck.

According to the police, two men stood on the passenger side footboard and showed the driver they had guns. The driver then attempted to speed off.

Investigators said the driver was not aware that a man was caught on the converter dolly between the two trailers.
