Man charged in Ferguson police shooting

Robert McCulloch, prosecuting attorney for St. Louis County, announces the arrest of Jeffery Williams for last week's shooting of two police officers working at a protest outside the Ferguson police station, on March 15, 2015 in ClaytonPolice charged a young African-American man in connection with the shooting in Ferguson last week that wounded two police officers and rekindled tension in the racially troubled Missouri city. Jeffrey Williams, 20, is charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and shooting a firearm from a motor vehicle causing injury, St Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch told reporters, after an intense four-day manhunt. “It’s possible at this point that he was firing shots at someone other than the police, but struck the police officers,” McCulloch said, adding that Williams had acknowledged firing gunshots and that the investigation was ongoing. Ferguson has been in the global spotlight since a white policeman fatally shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in August, igniting sometimes violent protests in major American cities and prompting an impassioned debate about policing and race relations.
