*(Via TheHill) – A pair of Missouri Democrats is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person — or people — responsible for shooting a pair of police officers amid protests in Ferguson, Mo., early Thursday morning.

Reps. Lacy Clay and Emanuel Cleaver, who condemned the shootings as a cowardly act, are hoping their financial incentive will help the local authorities close the open case.

“I completely condemn the cowardly ambush of the brave officers who were wounded last night in Ferguson,” Clay said in a statement. “I ask everyone to join me in prayers for their swift recovery and for healing in our community.

“The path of violence does not lead to justice,” he added.
