VIDEO: Footage Shows Man With Gun Before Being Shot By Police in Ferguson Protests

St. Louis County Police on Tuesday released surveillance video they say shows a man injured in a shootout with police holding a gun during street protests in Ferguson on Sunday night, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Tyrone Harris, 18, was charged Monday with several counts of assaulting police. Police on Tuesday uploaded a short clip of surveillance video provided to them by Solo Insurance Services at 9197 West Florissant Avenue. The video, according to police, "shows Harris grab a handgun out of his waistband once shots are fired during the protest."

A man can be seen running to the right in the video, then running back to the left with a gun in his hand. St. Louis County Police Officer Shawn McGuire said investigators are not aware of any surveillance video that shows the shooting.

Court records said Harris was part of a group exchanging gunfire with another group at 11:23 p.m. Sunday in the 9200 block of West Florissant Avenue during protests marking the first anniversary of the killing of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer. Harris remained hospitalized Tuesday.

That means he is only 1/2 guilty and should get a few million from this administration for being shot!

Perfect, the perp on surveillance video. Let's see if we have to go thru what Holder, Governor and potus did a year ago...drag it out trying to place blame on Blue while rioters, thugs and arsonists run free without accountability for their criminal behavior..all the while shouting hands up,dont shoot- BS!! My complements to Blue for decisive response.

Well, ain't that a shame for the girlfriend and "father" (derogatory and sarcastic intended) that said the police just shot him for no good reason. He was just exercising his constitutional right to peaceful protest and did not have a gun.

So much for the relatives comments that "he was a good boy and didn't have a gun".

I think every state should pass legislation that says if you, or a family member, are arrested at any of these so called "peaceful demonstrations" you forfeit any public assistance, aka: welfare, that you currently enjoy. Trust me, these so called parents would be policing these hot spots themselves to ensure the free cash continues to flow. Why should law abiding citizens, businesses, and insurance companies bare the brunt of governments failed policies. These folks could careless whether law enforcement spends their limited resources having to raise their children, as long as they can cash the checks they receive for having them. There MUST be consequences that these folks understand, and important enough for them to get off the couch and do their job whether they like it or not!

Anytime there is a gun used by a demonstrator un Ferguson of course the family is going to say he didn't have a gun. They are just trying to get it set up where family lawyer can start a lawsuit. Both lawyer and family, if that is what you can call them, smell money.

Jon, I agree they smell but I don't think it's money.....Blues, Stay Safe.

Jon Retired LEO @ 8/14/2015 6:41 PM

Right you are Bob. I stand corrected. Echoing your sentiment Blues stay safe.

SPOT ON! Rick M. This could happen if we ever get any honest leadership in government and a public that cares more about being informed than entertained.

deputy moose @ 8/21/2015 7:44 AM

SPOT ON Rick M.! However, I don't believe this could never happen with our current political "leadership," and the general public apathy towards government. The public is more concerned with being entertained rather than being informed.
