Police shoot a 2nd person in Ferguson MO

The shooting happened just before 1 a.m. Wednesday at Chambers Road and Sheffingdell Court in unincorporated St. Louis County.

St. Louis County police say they responded to a report about four masked men carrying shotguns in the area. The caller said the suspects had fired shots.

When police arrived at the scene they saw the men running. One officer "came into contact" with a suspect, who turned and pointed a handgun at the officer.

A police officer fired at least once at the suspect, wounding him. He was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. The officer is on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure while the shooting is investigated.


Question: If I'm holding a shotgun, why would i draw a pistol?

You wouldn't...BUT

was that really the situation here?

If you saw 4 guys with shotguns walking around shooting would you stick around so you could give an accurate description to a dispatcher?

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.


There were only 3 or fewer shotguns.

Because the shotgun was unloaded?


"we used our standard lie without thinking"?


I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.
