FERGUSON — Two FBI officers were shot and wounded at a house in north St Louis County early today (Nov 26), though it was not immediately clear if the incident was linked to racially-charged unrest in and around nearby Ferguson, media reported.
The agents were responding to a situation involving a person barricaded inside a house and suffered non-life threatening injuries, local broadcaster KSDK said on its website.
The FBI did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
About 2,000 National Guard troops dispatched to the St Louis area helped police stave off a second night of rioting and arson after a grand jury declined to indict a white policeman in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager, as sympathy protests spread to several United States cities.
