Shots fired at police in Ferguson – media reports
At least two police officers have been shot during a protest outside Ferguson Police Station, according to reports by local media.
Multiple accounts of the turmoil outside the Ferguson police station have emerged on social media.
One witness said on Twitter that a policeman had been shot in the face.
Ferguson Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he didn’t think either of the officers were from his department. He also would not comment on the extent of their injuries.
Police reportedly say the department is under lockdown and describe what’s happening outside as an “active shooting scene.”
