As Twitchy reported earlier, the Normandy Police Department released a statement Wednesday giving the details of an incident in which an 18-year-old fired at police officers before running off and attempting to take his own life.

Residents and those following the story on social media immediately suspected a conspiracy, and several amateur videos of witnesses and the teen’s father allege that not only was the teen shot by police, but by members of the nearby Ferguson Police Department.
