An arrest has been made in connection with the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, officials confirmed in a press conference on Sunday. But what he claims — and what the charges are so far — is already causing controversy.

During the press conference, Robert McCulloch announced that Jeffrey Williams, a 20-year-old Black male, has been arrested and charged for the shooting of two police officers on Thursday. The charges are assault in the first degree. McCulloch alluded to the details, saying:

“It was possible he was firing shots at someone other than the police, but struck the police officers.”


McCulloch said that Williams confirmed to authorities that it was indeed him that fired the shots, however, claimed that hitting the officers was not his intention.
