Man accused of Ferguson shooting again heads to court

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) A man accused of shooting two police officers during a Ferguson demonstration is scheduled for another court appearance.

Jeffrey L. Williams, 20, is to be in a St. Louis County circuit courtroom on today on charges of felony assault, armed criminal action and a weapons offense.

Williams is accused of wounding the officers on March 12, during an early-morning rally sparked by the resignation of Ferguson’s police chief. Both officers survived.

Prosecutors say Williams told investigators he fired a gun but was aiming at someone else. Williams’ attorney has countered that Williams was beaten by police into wrongly confessing.
