Two Cops Shot In Ferguson
The two officers were shot during a protest after the police chief resigned.
[su_right_ad]St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar told reporters early on Thursday that a 41-year-old officer from his department was struck in the shoulder and a 32-year-old officer from the nearby Webster Groves Police Department was hit in the face around midnight as the crowd was starting to break up.
“These police officers were standing there and they were shot, just because they were police officers,” Belmar said. “I have said all along, that we cannot sustain this forever without problems.”
He said the officers, whom he did not identify, were both conscious and being treated at a local hospital. The department later said in a statement that both were in serious condition.
