St. Louis Authorities: Ferguson Cop Shootings 'Very Close' To NYPD Executions
David K. Li at the New York Post reports on the official responce to the shooting of two Ferguson police officers.
St. Louis County authorities said they’re grateful the shootings of two officers in Ferguson early Thursday did not end in tragedy — like the execution of two Brooklyn cops three months ago.
A 32-year-old officer from nearby Webster Groves was shot in the face and a 41-year-old officer from St. Louis County was shot in the shoulder, but will thankfully survive, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar (seen in above in his official photo) said.
The wounded officers – both white men – were released from the hospital by mid-day Thursday, officials said.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said the officers were “intentionally targeted” and asked for the community’s help to solve the shooting.
