Sean Hannity took on a Ferguson protester who was outside the police station when two officers were shot Wednesday night. 

The protester, Ivory Ned, said he was in the crowd at the time and the shots "definitely" did not come from the crowd.

He said the "first action" was the August death of Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

"Then you have a reaction that happened, which was last night when the police officers got shot. Not saying it was right," said Ned.

Hannity fired back by calling on Ned to clearly say that violence against police officers "is wrong."

He then challenged Ned on the facts of the Brown case, including that Brown had robbed a convenience store and tried to grab Wilson's gun during the confrontation.

And he said that many black eyewitnesses did not corroborate the story that Brown had his hands up when he was shot.

"I think the story here is you shouldn't act that way and people shouldn't be shooting cops. I don't hear you saying that. Why not?" Hannity asked.

Ned argued there were also witnesses who said Brown had his hands up and that the facts are on the protesters' side. He said the attack on the police officers "was not right, but it was not right for Mike Brown to be dead and left for four hours on the ground."

Hannity referred Ned to the Justice Department report that stated, "witness accounts suggesting Brown was standing still with his hands raised in an unambiguous signal of surrender when Wilson shot Brown are inconsistent with the physical evidence, are otherwise not credible because of internal inconsistencies, or are not credible because of inconsistencies with other credible evidence."

The Justice Department released the findings when it declined to pursue charges against Wilson.
