FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) – Police were seeking suspects on Sunday in what seemed to be a apart shootings of dual military officers in and circuitously a Missouri city of Ferguson, where protests continue after a black teen was shot to genocide by a white military officer final month.

The Saturday night sharpened of an officer in a St. Louis suburb of Ferguson did not seem related to pacific protests elsewhere in a city, military said, nor to a apart sharpened involving an off-duty military officer in St. Louis early on Sunday.

Neither officer perceived life-threatening injuries, according to a St. Louis County Police Department.

More than 100 protesters collected circuitously a Ferguson Police Department on Sunday dusk to direct a detain of Darren Wilson, a officer who fatally shot unarmed teen Michael Brown Aug 9.

The protesters chanted “Whose streets? Our streets,” as a handful of military officers looked on.

No arrests have been done in a shootings of a dual officers, St. Louis County Police Sergeant Brian Schellman said.

In a initial incident, a officer had seen a male in a back of a Ferguson Community Center during about 9 p.m. on Saturday. The male ran divided and afterwards incited and shot a officer in a arm during a follow on foot, pronounced Schellman.

The officer, who was treated during a internal hospital, returned glow though apparently did not strike a suspect, who left into a circuitously wooded area, Schellman said.

Three hours later, an off-duty St. Louis City military officer pushing his personal car on Interstate 70 was shot during and suffered a teenager arm damage from damaged glass, Schellman said.

It was not transparent if a officer was targeted or if a sharpened was random, Schellman said. The officer, who was wearing his uniform trousers during a time though not a uniform shirt, did not lapse fire, a sergeant said.

Ferguson has seen weeks of infrequently aroused demonstrations following Brown’s death.

On Thursday, Ferguson military arch Tom Jackson released a video reparation to Brown’s relatives following weeks of complicated critique and calls for his ouster.

The reparation did not go down good with some. Many people in Ferguson, a mostly black village of 21,000, have pronounced Jackson should be dismissed for what they saw as a clumsy response in a issue of Brown’s killing.
