The person shot by a police officer on the anniversary of Mike Brown’ death was a friend of the 19-year-old that was killed last year by Ferguson PD officer Darren Wilson.
Reports say 18-year-old Tyrone Harris Jr., of St. Louis, was a close friend of Mike Brown and was identified by his father.
“We think there’s a lot more to this than what’s being said,” Harris Sr. said, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, adding that his son had graduated from Normandy High School.
Harris Sr. added that his son was coming out of surgery just last Monday.
Police maintain that a man fired upon police and that they returned shots wounding the person. They did not say that person was Tyrone Harris Jr.
There was a completely separate shooting in Ferguson as well, which happened before the Harris, Jr, slaying.
