FERGUSON: Police charged a young African-American man on Sunday in connection with the shooting in Ferguson last week that wounded two police officers and rekindled tension in the racially troubled Missouri city. Jeffrey Williams, 20, is charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and shooting a firearm from a motor vehicle causing injury, St Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch told reporters, after an intense four-day manhunt. “It’s possible at this point that he was firing shots at someone other than the police, but struck the police officers,” McCulloch said, adding that Williams had acknowledged firing gunshots and that the investigation was ongoing.
