Shots Fired, Cop Car Destroyed, and Looting on Ground in Ferguson

Shots Fired, Cop Car Destroyed, and Looting on Ground in Ferguson

Following the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson — who fatally shot black teen Mike Brown — live shots were fired several times on the ground in Ferguson, Missouri. 

Christian Hartsock, a videographer working with Breitbart News, heard two separate rounds of shots being fired. 

The first cluster of shots occurred shortly after the grand jury’s announcement. “Witnesses told cops it was a white male who fired the shorts,” Hartsock said. “Cops demanded that everyone clear the street.”
The second round of shots were heard from a “grassy hill” in the area near the fire station. It is unknown at this time who fired those shots. 
Hartsock also observed looting of a store and the destruction of a cop car. “People started wrecking a police car,” he said. “They were throwing rocks at it and kicking it.”
In an attempt to keep rioters in line, police have fired tear gas and deployed a tank on the street.
