Tyrone Harris Jr., an 18-year-old St. Louis resident, has been identified as the man shot by St. Louis County Police during demonstrations commemorating the first anniversary Sunday night of Michael Brown's death in Ferguson, Missouri. Tyrone Harris Sr. told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his son had just gotten out of surgery shortly after 3 a.m. Monday. He was in critical condition.
Harris Sr. said his son graduated from Normandy High School, the same school near Ferguson that Brown graduated from, and that Harris Jr. and Brown were good friends. "We think there's a lot more to this than what's being said," Harris Sr. said.
Authorities said Harris Jr. was wounded after a suspect fired multiple shots at four St. Louis County plainclothes officers in an unmarked police vehicle. The officers fired back and the shooter was struck, said Jon Belmar, chief of county police force, who did not confirm Harris Jr. as the shooter Monday morning.
