The Latest: Police chief: Man seriously injured in shooting

( KTRS ) The latest in the events marking a year since the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says a man who opened fire on officers in Ferguson, is in “critical, unstable” condition after being struck when the officers returned fire.

Belmar said at a news conference early Monday morning that plainclothes officers had been tracking the man, who they believed was armed, during a protest marking the anniversary of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Belmar says the man approached the officers, who were in an unmarked police car and opened fire. The officers returned fire from inside the vehicle. They then pursued the man on foot.

The chief says the man again fired on the officers. All four fired back. The man was taken to a hospital, where Belmar said he was in surgery. The mans identity has not yet been released.
