Man Shot At Ferguson Curfew Protest; UPDATE: Shooter Was a Protester
There are reports that bullets were fired at the protest in Ferguson tonight after the curfew was imposed. [UPDATE: Additional tweets and information from morning press conference added below.]
Given the ample opportunity they had to shoot at police, it’s a miracle there weren’t other injuries. At the early morning press conference, State Trooper Captain Ron Johnson said that the tear gas was deployed because of the shooter, which a policeman spotted via binoculars.
SO, the protesters got violent and the police responded.
