(FERGUSON, Mo.) — Police have swarmed a home in Ferguson, Missouri Thursday morning, just four blocks away from the police department.
The search comes hours after two police officers were shot amid protests in front of the Ferguson Police Department.
“I can confirm that it’s related, and it’s just part of the investigation,” St. Louis County police officer Shawn McGuire told ABC News.
The crowd of protesters in front of the police department fluctuated throughout Wednesday evening in the wake of the resignation of the city’s police chief Tom Jackson, but by midnight, the crowd had begun to disperse.
On Thursday morning, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said that the search for the suspect or suspects responsible for the shooting was the department’s “number one priority.”
