Ferugson Police look for shooter after two officers wounded
FERGUSON, Mo. - Police have converged on a home in Ferguson, Missouri, and taken people in for questioning following the shootings of two police officers.
The two officers were shot during a protest outside Ferguson police headquarters early this morning.
Both were released from the hospital today. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says neither man is expected to suffer any long-term damage, though one officer was shot in the face, just below his right eye, with the bullet lodging behind his ear.
Belmar says the shooting easily could have resulted in two deaths. He cited the two New York City officers who were ambushed in their police cruiser in December.
Belmar says the shots were fired from across the street.
