Gunfire erupts at Ferguson protest marking second anniversary of Michael Brown’s death

FERGUSON, Mo. – Gunshots rang out after a car struck a protester during a demonstration in Ferguson, Missouri, on the second anniversary of Michael Brown’s death, disrupting what had been a peaceful gathering but apparently striking no one.


Witnesses told The Associated Press that a car drove through a group of protesters who were blocking a street during the demonstration Tuesday night marking two years since the unarmed black 18-year-old’s fatal shooting by a white police officer. They said the car struck a young man so hard that he flew into the air.

“A lady came down and hit a protester – knocked the shoes off his feet,” said Sharon Cowan, who was at the scene. “Hit him, and he rolled and he bounced.”
