Boy Shot In Ferguson Riot

Another death has taken place in Ferguson during the riots caused by a officer named Darren Wilson being freed of all charges. Ferguson, MO has yielded yet another death. This time, 20-year-old DeAndre Joshua was shot dead during the massive riots in the St. Louis suburb. Though details are still murky, the young man was allegedly shot by a stray bullet while sitting in his Pontiac Grand Prix

Reports since last night claimed that there have been over 150 gunshots during the turmoil, not to mention over 25 businesses and buildings that have been destroyed. Joshua’s car was parked less than a mile from where Michael Brown was killed by Officer Darren Wilson on August 9th, 2014. Ferguson resident Richard Taylor, who lives nearby the location where Joshua was killed recalls hearing men outside his home conspiring to kill someone. 

The town of Ferguson,MO has dominated mainstream headlines and been in constant turmoil since the August shooting of Michael Brown. Upon the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson, widespread chaos ensued along with massive protests in cities all across America. Police are still searching for clues in the case of DeAndre Joshua but resources have been limited considering the current circumstances.
