Two police officers reportedly were shot outside the Ferguson Police Department in the St. Louis suburb just after midnight Thursday during protests following the police chief's resignation, according to reporters at the scene.
Images posted on social media appeared to show one officer being carried away. Witness Tony Rice told The Huffington Post he heard several shots and saw one officer on the ground hollering.
Officers drew their weapons and took protective positions after the shots were fired, and many of the protesters cleared the area. Officers advanced up a street across from the police department where the shots seem to have originated, one live stream showed.
