Late Saturday evening, authorities received and responded to a report of an officer shot in north St. Louis County. The St. Louis Police spoke with News 4 of St. Louis and confirmed an officer had been shot. The police have now set up a staging area around the area of West Florissant and Stein. Multiple police departments have been witnessed on scene. The condition of the officer was not released by the police.
West Florissant Rd. has been closed from I-270 all the way to Chambers as police attempt to canvas the area for suspects. Reports say the suspect fled on foot. Police helicopters and K9 officers have been dispatched.
It is unconfirmed at the moment, but many witnesses and livestreamer's are reporting that a Ferguson youth may have been killed by the responding police officers. The wristbands that officers were wearing in support of Darren Wilson, along with the burning of Michael Brown's memorial and, have reopened the barely healed wound in Missouri. Protestors and police are filling the streets.
