Police Near Ferguson Shoot and Critically Injure Another Teen
Chaos continues in and around the town of Ferguson, Mo., as there’s been another person shot by the police and, separately, a woman was shot in the head, possibly as the result of a drive-by. In the case of the former, police responded to reports of shots being fired just near the town still protesting the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown only a few days ago.
Police showed up at the scene and a 19-year-old pulled a gun, at which point one of the officers reportedly feared for his life and shot the 19-year-old more than once. That teenager is still alive, but in the hospital and in critical condition.
Meanwhile, an hour before that incident and only a mile away, a woman was shot as a car drove by. Police say it’s possible, but unclear, that the shots were fired from the car.
