ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Select police officers in Ferguson received training last week with a “less-lethal” weapon.

The Washington Post Reports the new weapon, called the alternative, is created by a California company.

A bullet fired from the weapon is designed to knock a person down, maybe cause an injury, but not kill them.

Five Ferguson officers tested the device last week.

The department plans to eventually introduce it to the entire force.
