Protesters: Don’t know man charged with shooting officers

Ferguson, MO ( KTRS ) – Protesters say they don’t know a man charged with shooting and wounding two officers last week outside the Ferguson Police Department.

St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch reported Sunday that Jeffrey Williams, 20, had attended a protest earlier in the evening before two St. Louis area officers were shot early Thursday.

Brittany Ferrell, 26,  says she’d just left a meeting with other protest leaders Sunday when word of the arrest circulated.

The protest leader with the group Millennial Activists United said no one in the group knew Williams.

A St. Louis NAACP leader also hadn’t heard of Williams.

Ferrell says she suspects McCulloch tried to cast Williams as a protester to reflect negatively on the movement.

McCulloch led a grand jury that declined to indict officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown.
