Police Shoot Man in Clash at Ferguson Anniversary Protest

St. Louis Police Chief Jon Belmar said plainclothes detectives had been monitoring a man they feared was armed, and that he was then involved in exchange of 40 or 50 shots between two groups of people before shooting the officers' unmarked vehicle multiple times.  The four detectives all returned fire and the man went down, the chief said.
