It was the one year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death a few weeks ago, and as a result, the racial protests in Ferguson, Missouri have been reignited.

There was a memorial service taking place a year after Michael Brown’s death. According to Extribune, it started out a very quiet and peaceful event but turned violent quickly when a man in the crowd begin shooting at some of the people who were attending the service.

The shooter was Tyrone Harris, Jr, who police fired at in order to put a halt to his act of violence. Harris is currently in critical condition and there have been ten charges filed against him. He is now being held on $250,000 bond.

John Belmar, who is the police chief and who spoke at the memorial service, told reporters why his officers decided to open fire on Harris.

“There is a small group of people out there that are intent on making sure we don’t have peace that prevails,” Belmar said. “We can’t sustain that in a community.”
