Shots Fired, Looting, Violence
Sadly, there was violence, looting and shots fired in Ferguson after the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted.
As news of the “no bill” made its way through the streets of Ferguson, violence began erupting and a police officer was hit with “something.” Also, the St. Louis Police Department reported minutes after the announcement police were called to South Florissant, just south of the Ferguson Police Department, on reports of looting. At 9:03 p.m., SLPD confirmed shots were fired across the street from Ferguson police and a police car has had its back window shattered.
Police also confirmed a molotov cocktail was thrown at officers. Officials on scene deployed pepper spray and smoke in an effort to dispense an unruly crowd.[su_csky_ad]
