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.
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.
The shots appeared to come from the direction of a block of homes on Tiffin Avenue that intersects West Florissant Avenue, where the police department is located. Witnesses reported two to four shots.
The shooting brought a much larger contingent of officers, many with high-powered rifles, to the scene. http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/two-police-officers-are-shot-in-ferguson/article_eda6589f-d0fc-5420-8489-787a218a6d83.html
Besides the shooter, there are only 4 people who can claim they had a big role in the shootings and they are the Racist Brothers of Eric, Barack, Jesse and Al. The racist brothers have encouraged people to protest and to commit acts of violence in Ferguson against the cops and other law abiding citizens.
The blood of these officers are on Obama's, Holder's, Sharpton's and Jackson's hands.
