Two Men Were Reportedly Shot During Ferguson Protests
On Tuesday night (Apr. 28), Ferguson erupted in violence after a protest. There was an alleged shooting involved, which resulted in a man being shot in the neck, according to St.Louis Alderman Antonio French.
Witnesses say someone (not police) shot the man in his neck on Canfield. He got himself in the truck to the hospital. Hopefully will be OK.

An earlier shooting also took place, where a man was shot in the leg. After getting shot, he retreated to a nearby restaurant. According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, an ambulance picked up the victim while the shooter was taken into custody. In addition to these two shootings, after midnight more shots were allegedly fired.
Amid the violence that has engulfed the city of Baltimore, it’s unfortunate Ferguson has succumbed to sense-less brutality once again. We hope things simmer down, and return to a full state of peace for all.
