The protests were in response to the resignation of Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson which occured on Wednesday. 

According to Christine Byers of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the officers shot were from St. Louis County Police Department and Webster Groves Police Department.

The incident was captured on social media. In the video below, one man can be heard shouting "Acknowledgement nine months ago would have kept that from happening!" The shots came from "on the hill behind us" according to one voice on the video.
