Attorney Defends The Suspect Accused of Shooting at Ferguson Police
CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — The attorney for a man accused of shooting two police officers last week in Ferguson said his client was not targeting police or aiming at demonstrators at a late-night protest. Defense attorney Jerryl Christmas also suggested that police used excessive force during their arrest of 20-year-old Jeffrey Williams. Christmas says Williams had bruises on his back, shoulders and face and a knot on his head. Police spokesman Brian Schellman called the lawyer's allegations "completely false."
