The 18-year-old man shot by police after he allegedly opened fire during a protest in Ferguson, Missouri, Sunday night was out on bond in a separate felony case, KTVI-TV reported.
A St. Louis Police Department spokesman confirmed to TheBlaze that Tyrone Harris Jr. was arrested in November on charges of stealing a car, theft of a firearm and resisting arrest by fleeing.
According to KTVI, police had pursued Harris speeding down a one-way street. After officers threw down stop sticks and arrested him, he reportedly admitted to stealing the car as well as a 9 mm gun.
KTVI also reported that a Facebook page said to belong to Harris features dozens of photos of Harris posing with guns and statuses about illegal and gang-related activities, often using the hashtag #pistolgang.
The following are images KTVI and the website the Daily Haze attributed to Harris’ Facebook page, where he went by “Ty Glocks.” The St. Louis police spokesman could not confirm the authenticity of the page, as it is unrelated to his pending case.
