Man arrested in connection to shooting of two officers in Ferguson, police say

Police have made an arrest in connection with the shooting last week of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, the St. Louis County Police Department said in a tweet Sunday.

Details of the arrest were sparse, but a jail spokesman confirmed Sunday a man was there on a 24-hour hold for assault against a police officer and firing at or from a vehicle.

On Friday, police said they were still chasing leads in the case and insisted the trail had not gone cold.
