The shooting occurred just after midnight Thursday as a demonstration ended outside the Ferguson Police Department to mark the resignation of the Ferguson police chief.
One officer from the nearby town of Webster Groves was shot in the face, according to NBC News. The other officer was struck in the shoulder.
Neither wound was life-threatening, but the officer shot in the face still has the bullet lodged in his head, NBC reported.
