Two Officers Shot During Protest Near Ferguson Police Department
Two police officers suffered “very serious” wounds after being shot early Thursday during a demonstration in Ferguson, Missouri, authorities said.
Gunfire rang out as about 50 protesters and about 30 police officers remained outside the Ferguson Police Department shortly after midnight local time (1 a.m. ET) at a dwindling rally following the resignation of the embattled force’s chief.
St. Louis County Police Chief John Belmar said that it appeared that at least three shots were “directed exactly at” the officers.
