Cop Shot in Ferguson, MO



Via NYT:

A Ferguson, Mo., police officer was shot on Saturday night, the local authorities said, as protests continued over the death of an unarmed teenager who was shot by a police officer last month.

The shooting happened around 9:20 p.m., said Brian Schellman, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department.


Via St Louis Dispatch:

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said Saturday night that the officer was on routine patrol and spotted two suspects trying to break into a business. He would not disclose the name of the business but said it was in Ferguson.

When the officer confronted the suspects, Jackson said, one of them pulled a gun and fired at the officer. The officer was struck once in the arm, and is expected to be okay.
