FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County police say two young males have been injured in what appears to have been a drive-by shooting near a monument to Michael Brown, who was shot to death a year ago.
Spokesman Shawn McGuire said in an email that the 17-year-old and 19-year-old males told officers they were walking around 2:15 a.m. Monday near the Canfield Apartments in Ferguson, Missouri, when an unknown black man shot at them from the back of a passing vehicle.
McGuire says the 17-year-old was shot in the chest and shoulder and the 19-year-old was shot in the chest. He says both are being treated at a hospital and that neither has life-threatening injuries.
The shootings come as the St. Louis suburb marks the anniversary of the killing of Brown, a black 18-year-old, by a white Ferguson police officer.
