“The man arrested for the shooting of two police officers during last week’s protests in Ferguson, Missouri, has been identified as Jeffrey Williams, 20,” cnn.com reports. “St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said he’s been charged with two counts of first-degree assault, among other charges, and is being held on a cash-only $300,000 bond. Thanks to information provided by the public, police were able to locate a weapon at suspect Jeffrey Williams’ home: a .40-caliber handgun that ‘has been tied to the shell casings that were recovered’ at the scene in Ferguson, Missouri.” The man usatoday.com calls “a protestor” admits to the shooting but claims he wasn’t trying to kill cops . . .
McCulloch said Williams admitted firing the shots but said he was shooting at someone else.
“We’re not sure we buy that part of it,” McCulloch said, adding that the handgun used in the shooting has been recovered.
He said Williams was involved in the demonstration that was wrapping up when the incident took place.
