Topic: Suspect in Ferguson shooting of police appears in court

By Richard Valdmanis FERGUSON, Mo. (Reuters) - The man accused of wounding two policemen during a protest rally outside the Ferguson, Missouri, police headquarters last week appeared in court on Monday briefly and did not enter a plea. The shooting was the latest violent incident in months of demonstrations in Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb, after a white police officer shot dead unarmed black teen Michael Brown during a confrontation in August. Jeffrey L. Williams, 20, has admitted to firing the shots that wounded the officers early Thursday and also told authorities he was not shooting at police, Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said on Sunday after announcing the arrest. Williams did not give any statements on Monday during his brief appearance before Judge Joseph Dueker in St. Louis County Circuit Court.
