London, Aug.10 (ANI): Police have shot a person in Ferguson, a city in St. Louis County, Missouri, United States, after its officers came under heavy gunfire near a demonstration that marked the anniversary of the fatal shooting of Michael Brown last year.

According to the Guardian, Shawn McGwire of St Louis County Police said in an email that an officer from the department shot a person “after officers came under heavy gunfire”.

The injuries have not yet been confirmed as the officers claimed that two unmarked police cars came under fire during the gunfight.

A young black man was seen lying wounded and handcuffed on the ground beside two officers after chaotic scenes on West Florissant Avenue.

Dozens of people had gathered in the area to protest the death of Brown in 2014. (ANI)
