St. Louis County St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar [above] told reporters that the shooting incident at the Michael Brown “protest” in Ferguson, MO involved plainclothes police officers “tracking looters.” They were following a suspect who had, apparently, exchanged gunfire with another, unkown individual. When the perp ran away, the cops chased him. The perp unleashed a “remarkable amount of gunfire” at the cops. The officers returned fire. CNN picks up the story from there . . .
Detectives in an unmarked SUV turned on its emergency lights and pursued the suspect, only to be shot at, according to Belmar. The bullets hit the vehicle’s hood and windshield several times, Belmar said.
As the detectives got out of the car, the suspect allegedly turned around and fired again
Then he ran toward a fenced area, where he continued firing — until officers struck him multiple times, Belmar said.
The suspect was using a stolen SIG SAUER.
