[Ed. – The wire report has almost nothing except the statement that the officer was not killed. Some websites have a Tweet stating that the perp was also shot and was “killed by police.” That’s unconfirmed, and according to other Tweets assembled at Twitchy, the perp was still at large about 2 hours ago. It isn’t actually clear that there’s any connection to revenge for Michael Brown.]
