Ahh, tis easy to use the cover of protests by others to carry out a deadly deed.
Two police officers are shot in Ferguson NewsFERGUSON • Two police officers were hit by gunfire early Thursday outside the Ferguson police department.
The shots were fired as police were confronting protesters who had gathered outside the police station.
Ferguson Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff said he didn't think either of the officers were from his department. He also didn't know the extent of their injuries. Eickhoff was not at the scene at the time of the shooting but he said he was headed there.
A police source said one of the officers is a St. Louis County officer and the other a Webster Groves officer.
The shots rang out as the protests appeared to be dwindling. Some of the protesters fell to the ground and others ran.
Several members of the media, including a Post-Dispatch reporter and photographer, were near the officers who were hit.
