Gunman shot by police during Ferguson protest gets 15 years in prison
By Joel Currier | St. Louis Post-Dispatch | August 26, 2017


CLAYTON • A man shot by undercover police in Ferguson after he fired at them during an anniversary protest of Michael Brown's death was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison.

Tyrone Harris, 20, pleaded guilty Friday to four counts of assaulting police, five counts of armed criminal action and one count of shooting at or from a vehicle. St. Louis County Judge Joseph Dueker sentenced Harris to 15 years on all counts as part of a plea agreement between Harris and prosecutors.

Police said that the officers went after Harris in an unmarked car, with warning lights flashing, and that he fired at them. At least one shot hit their vehicle. Police returned fire and pursued him on foot. They shot him, they said, when he turned at them with a 9mm pistol that had been reported stolen in Cape Girardeau, Mo.
