Ferguson called for witnesses to come forward. “I am begging you, I am pleading with you — the community — to come forward with any information that you may have.”
Ferguson also implored any family members of the victims to “let the police handle it. ”We do not want street justice. We do not want any more blood on our streets.”
“We will ensure justice at every single level,” said Mayor LaToya Cantrell, who stood next to Ferguson during the news conference at the scene.
“Any time in which we, as a society, are talking about social justice vs. social injustice, we as a community need to take a look at ourselves and what is it we are doing, what is it that we are accepting as a norm with this Black on Black violence,” said Ferguson, who is Black.
