The two cops shot in Ferguson, Missouri on Thursday morning were the victim of an “ambush,” the St. Louis County police chief said, but added that the officers will suffer no long-term injuries. Chief Jon Belmar provided an update on the situation in Ferguson during a 9 am CDT press conference early Thursday, held just a few hours after two officers were shot near the city’s police station. "This is really an ambush,” Belmar said. "Fortunately, with both officers, we don't have any remarkable long-term injuries," the police chief said. Belmar told reporters that a demonstration outside of the Ferguson Police Department building on Wednesday evening had turned “pretty rowdy” before two “defenseless” cops were shot. The officers—identified so far only as a 41-year-old from the St. Louis County Police and a 32-year-old officer from the nearby Webster Groves Police Department—were struck in the shoulder and face, respectively. Officials declined to weigh in on any potential leads concerning possible suspects during Thursday morning’s presser, but Belmar said authorities believe bullets were fired from a handgun, based off of the sound of the gunshots and shell casings found at the scene. With regards to possible suspects, Belmar said authorities have yet to identify any individuals sought in connection with the shooting. He added that there had been news reports of fist fights outside of the Ferguson Police Department before the shooting occurred, but said he could not independently verify what had happened before shots were fired. This chaos will never calm down. Ferguson looks like another country somewhere in Africa. Not a part of the USA.
