Two Police Officers Shot in Ferguson This Morning

Police were questioning three people in connection with the shooting of two Missouri police officers early Thursday at a protest outside the Ferguson police headquarters, and a top law enforcement official said it was only "by God's grace" that the two cops are expected to survive.

"Lucky," St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference hours after the early morning shootings. "By God's grace we didn't lose two officers last night."

The police officers, not members of Ferguson's force, were part of a 25-man police line at the embattled headquarters, where Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson had announced his resignation hours earlier. Witnesses reported hearing as many as four shots and seeing the flash of a muzzle about 125 yards away from the police.
