- A man charged in the shooting of two police officers during a demonstration in Ferguson told investigators he was not targeting law enforcement and had been aiming for someone with whom he was in dispute.
St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch said he believed that suspect Jeffrey Williams, 20, attended last week's protest before the shooting happened. Activists said Williams was not a consistent fixture in their tight-knit group.
"We're not sure we completely buy that part of it," McCulloch said of Williams' contention that he did not fire at the officers.
