On Sunday night Tyrone Harris, a friend of Michael Brown, was shot by police officers after he exchanged fire with them in an unmarked van.
Harris underwent surgery for his injuries and was charged with four counts of assault on police officers on Monday.
Harris posted several photos on Facebook of himself holding guns.
Tyrone’s father Tyrone Harris Sr. told reporters his son wasn’t a bad kid and was not shooting at the police. He just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

The video, released by St. Louis County Police, shows Harris grab a handgun out of his waistband once shots are fired during the protest in the West Florissant corridor seconds prior to the officer involved shooting.
