One officer required surgery. The suspect has been identified as 26-year-old Larynzo Johnson. He faces two counts of assault on a police officer and multiple counts of wanton endangerment.

"I'm very concerned about the safety of our officers. Obviously, we've had two officers shot tonight and that is very serious. It's a very dangerous condition. I think the safety of our officers and the community we serve is of the utmost importance," Schroeder said.

Protests were initially peaceful, but as the 9 p.m. curfew neared, some protesters started small fires, including ones at Jefferson Square Park and the Hall of Justice.
