St. Louis American photographer Lawrence Bryant captured police officers assisting a fellow officer hit by gunfire outside the Ferguson Police Headquarters early Thursday morning in Ferguson, Missouri.

Two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, were shot early on Thursday in what officials called an ambush following months of acute tensions over relations between police and minority groups in the St. Louis suburb.
