The Other Ferguson Shooting: Black Teen Trevion Hopson Shoots Fellow Protester

I saw this yesterday night from conservative Kurt Schlicter, commenting  on a  tweet from Yamiche Alcindor, a USA Today reporter covering the Ferguson anniversary.

Here's a story from a local station:

Teenager charged in overnight Ferguson shooting, KSDK, August 9, 2015

FERGUSON, Mo. - A 17-year-old boy is now charged with an overnight shooting on West Florissant in Ferguson.

Police say 17-year-old Trevion Hopson shot a man in the Family Dollar parking lot Saturday night. Police say he then continued firing shots into a crowd while running down West Florissant. Police say the victim was targeted.

He is expected to be OK.

Police also say Hopson had carried the gun while attending the protests last night in Ferguson.

Hopson is facing two counts of unlawful use of a weapon and one count of resisting arrest.

The story doesn't say whether the person shot by Hopson was white or black, but the Yamiche Alcindor's "fellow protester" implies black on black crime.
