Armed Criminals Hit Elementary School in Ferguson During Protests Monday Night

Some school kids may return from break to find classroom windows boarded. Armed criminals struck an elementary school in Ferguson during overnight riots this week.

Resident Renwick Ware said, “Now you’re interfering with the school. You’re messing with the kids’ education now.”

Students at Griffith Elementary already missed extra classes this week. Now they may see boarded windows and missing electronics when the doors open at 8:30a.m. Monday.

Ware said it’s the work of four men in two cars. He said, “They had guns on ’em and all that and I approached and came out of my driveway, I noticed they were loading stuff up.”

Ferguson Police report stolen electronics, some of which they’ve already recovered. Ware says Ferguson officers and National Guardsmen responded quickly after he drove to a command station to report what he witnessed.
