A police officer in University City, a suburb of St. Louis was shot in the arm at about 11:30 Monday night.
Police said it appears the officer will be OK. It happened at Canton and Lamb avenues, just northeast of Millar Park.
It is not yet known if this is connected to the protests in Ferguson which is six miles away.

In New York, hundreds marched through Union Square holding signs saying “Jail Killing Cops” and “Resistance Is Justified.” Protesters were penned in an area at the northern end of the square, behind a ring of police officers. They pushed the metal police barriers aside and rushed towards the southern end of the square where holiday kiosks selling crafts were set up. The protesters yelled, “No justice, no peace, no racist police.”
In downtown Tempe, AZ., about 60 people showed up at Tempe Town Lake, splintering intwo two groups after a verbal dispute over protest tactics.

About 15 people gathered in front of the Theodore Levin United States Federal Courthouse in Detroit earlier on Monday night. The small group prayed and joined hands in the bitter cold as they awaited the decision. Rev.
