Six months after the murder of 18-year-old Michael Brown, Ferguson police are testing a less-lethal gun attachment device in an effort to prevent unwanted shooting deaths.

The attachment being used by Ferguson police officers is manufactured by Alternative Ballistics is a one-time use device that is supposed to knock a suspect down, not kill them with one caveat. The manufacturer can no guarantee that the person shot by one of the projectiles will not be killed.

Currently there are five Ferguson police officers testing the device on the streets. Once the trial period is over, the city will make a decision whether or not the entire police department will be equipped with the less-lethal attachment.
