Police form a line outside the Ferguson Police Department as people demonstrate nearby Wednesday, March 11, 2015, in Ferguson, Mo. Earlier in the day, the resignation of Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson was announced in the wake of a scathing Justice Department report prompted by the fatal shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old by a white police officer.

(Via LA Times) – Two police officers were apparently shot outside the Ferguson Police Department during another night of protests in the troubled Missouri city, according to local media and witness accounts.

The Ferguson Fire Department confirmed it had received a report of shots fired, but could not give any additional details.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that two officers were hit. Ferguson Police Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff told the paper he thought that neither officer was from the Ferguson Police Department.
