Time and Rain Cool Tempers As Protests And Hunt For Ferguson Shooting Suspects Continues

Prayers went up, the rain came down and tensions cooled overnight in Ferguson, Missouri. It was a far cry from 24 hours earlier, when tempers flared and two police officers took bullets in the St. Louis suburb. Authorities changed tactics in the aftermath of the shootings. St. Louis County Police said it had assumed "command of the security detail regarding protests," together with the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Ferguson Police remain responsible for "routine policing services" in the city. Investigators believe they have identified two people they want to question in the shooting, and one of them might be the shooter, a law enforcement official said. Police are also trying to find anyone who may have helped the shooter get away.
