FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)- St. Louis County Police have confirmed to affiliate FOX 2 that the suspected shooter of two police officers early Thursday morning outside of the Ferguson police department is in custody.

The two officers were shot just after midnight, just as many protesters were headed home following a night of protests after the resignation of the city’s police chief.

One of the wounded officers is from Webster Groves Police and was shot in the cheek, just under his right eye.  The other wounded officer is with the St. Louis County Police and was hit in the shoulder and the bullet came out the middle of his back. Both men were treated and released.
