A police officer has been shot in the City of Ferguson, Missouri, a St. Louis suburb still gripped by public outrage over the killing of an unarmed teenager by a cop last month.
A police spokesman reports that the officer was shot in the arm and sustained non-life-threatening injuries when he approached two suspects near a community center. The suspects ran and turned and fired on the officer as he ran after them.
Police from at least a dozen agencies are using K-9 officers and police helicopters to search the area.
