Police shoot a 2nd person in Ferguson MOSubmitted by meekandmild on Wed, 08/13/2014 - 10:05
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?
