We’re still keeping our eye on a developing story out of Ferguson Missouri where during demonstrations outside the Ferguson Police Station last night two St. Louis-area police officers were shot. Their injuries are being described as serious. The search is on this morning for the shooter…shots reportedly did not come from the crowd assembled to demand more city officials step down but instead from further away over demonstrator’s heads. Both are in the hospital recovering this morning. This happened just hours after Ferguson Missouri Police Chief Tom Jackson resigned in the wake of a Justice Department report that finds extreme racism in his department
