    MO - The Shooting of teen Michael Brown *Media, Timelines Maps* No Discussion


    Grief and Protests Follow Shooting of a Teenager
    Police Say Mike Brown Was Killed After Struggle for Gun in St. Louis Suburb

    The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager Saturday by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb came after a struggle for the officer’s gun, police officials said Sunday, in an explanation that met with outrage and skepticism in the largely African-American community.


    Multiple investigations underway in Ferguson shooting

    Tensions are high in Ferguson, Missouri and a large police presence is on hand after a teenager was shot to death by a police officer.

    The St. Louis County Police Department held a press conference Sunday morning where they stated Brown was shot “more than just a couple of times” by a 6-year member of the Ferguson Police department.


    Looting, Vandalism After Vigil for Missouri Man Killed by Cop

    Protests broke out overnight on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, with vehicles and businesses damaged and looting reported, following the police shooting of Michael Brown, 18.

    People could be seen carrying hubcaps out of an auto supply store. A shoe store also was looted, with police swarming into the store's parking lot. A QuikTrip convenience store was overrun, with people grabbing items and running out of the store, glass shattered and items strewn about the sidewalk.


    Killing of unarmed Missouri man draws criticism

    An 18-year-old black man shot multiple times by a suburban St. Louis police officer was unarmed when he died, police said Sunday, as hundreds of local residents protested and a civil rights leader expressed outrage at the killing.

    Michael Brown had graduated from high school and was about to enter a local college, said his mother, Lesley McSpadden.

    St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said the shooting occurred after an officer encountered two people — one of whom was Brown — on the street near an apartment complex Saturday afternoon in Ferguson, a predominantly black suburb a few miles north of downtown St. Louis.

    Family of slain teen call for nonviolence, witness to come forward

    Michael Brown’s parents on Monday emphatically rejected police accounts of their son’s fatal shooting by an unnamed officer on Saturday, calling on witnesses to step forward with information that would cast doubt on law enforcement’s version of events.

    Speaking through their lawyer, Benjamin Crump, the family said the 18-year-old, whom teachers described as a “gentle giant,” didn’t have the personality to try and wrestle away an officer’s gun, as police have said.

    Eyewitness to Michael Brown shooting recounts his friend’s death

    The last moments of Michael Brown’s life were filled with shock, fear and terror, says a witness who stood just feet away as a police officer shot and killed the unarmed teen.

    “I saw the barrel of the gun pointed at my friend,” said Dorian Johnson, 22. “Then I saw the fire come out of the barrel.”

    Johnson, in an exclusive interview with msnbc, said what began as an order by a police officer to ‘get the f— onto the sidewalk’ quickly escalated into a physical altercation and then, gunfire.


    What we know about Michael Brown's shooting

    t's a case of he said, he said. The accounts of why a police officer fatally shot Michael Brown on a street in Ferguson, Missouri, on Saturday couldn't be more disparate.

    One side says the teenager was surrendering, his hands in the air to show he was unarmed, when the officer opened fire. Authorities counter that Brown attacked the officer in his car and tried to take his gun.

    St. Louis cops use ‘beanbag rounds’ after reports of protesters throwing rocks

    Police in riot gear fired tear gas into a crowd of protesters in a St. Louis suburb where an unarmed black teenager had been fatally shot by police over the weekend, as tension rose even amid calls for collective calm.

    Between two nights of unrest, a community forum hosted by the local NAACP chapter Monday night drew hundreds to a sweltering church in Ferguson, the nearly 70 percent black St. Louis County suburb where an unarmed 18-year-old, Michael Brown, was shot multiple times by a police officer.


    Police Won’t Name Officer Who Shot Unarmed Missouri Teen

    Police said Tuesday that they won’t release the name of an officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager last week in a St. Louis suburb following threats to the officer’s life, a move that could further inflame protesters who have clashed with authorities while demanding the officer’s arrest.


    Threats delay release of officer's name

    Timothy Zoll, spokesperson for the Ferguson Police Department, has confirmed to NewsChannel 5 they will not release the name of the officer who fired the fatal shots at 18-year-old Michael Brown Saturday afternoon.

    In Ferguson, Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery gives account of his arrest

    For the past week in Ferguson, reporters have been using the McDonald’s a few blocks from the scene of Michael Brown’s shooting as a staging area. Demonstrations have blown up each night nearby. But inside there’s WiFi and outlets, so it’s common for reporters to gather there.

    That was the case Wednesday. My phone was just about to die, so as I charged it, I used the time to respond to people on Twitter and do a little bit of a Q&A since I wasn’t out there covering the protests.

    Rev. Al Sharpton on trail of justice in Missouri shooting

    Al Sharpton has seen the same tragic tale so many times over the decades he could recite the entire sequence from memory:

    It always begins with an unarmed black or Hispanic male killed by cops during an arrest for some minor infraction.

    Which is why Sharpton on Tuesday was in Ferguson, Mo., the St. Louis suburb rocked by angry protests and minor looting last weekend after local cops shot to death an 18-year-old black man they had stopped for walking in the street.

    The dead teen, Michael Brown, was scheduled to start college this week. The unarmed Brown assaulted an officer, cops say, a version several witnesses dispute.


    Police defend use of tear gas, smoke at protests

    St. Louis County police spokesman Brian Schellman said officers on Wednesday night tossed tear gas to disperse a large crowd of protesters after some threw Molotov cocktails and rocks at officers. More than 10 people were arrested in Ferguson.

    "In talking to these guys, it is scary," Schellman said of officers on the front lines of the protest. "They hear gunshots going off, and they don't know where they're coming from."

    Ferguson violence: Critics rip police tactics, use of military equipment

    To people on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, and many around the world who watched it unfold, it seemed like a scene out of another country.

    "They are now firing into the crowd," a reporter says Wednesday night as loud blasts and fiery sparks show tear gas canisters apparently being shot by police. Screams follow.

    "They're firing rubber bullets," a reporter with KARG Argus Radio is heard saying on video. "They're attacking reporters; they are attacking civilians. They are firing up on the media."


    “The whole picture is being painted a little bit sideways…” Chief Tom Jackson speaks in Ferguson

    The shooting death of teenager Michael Brown has caused an uproar in the City of Ferguson over the last several days. Demonstrators have protested the area after reports that a Ferguson police offer is responsible for his untimely death.

    The use of tear gas and other “military tactics,” (according to protesters) were put in place during and after the looting on Sunday. Many area businesses were destroyed including the QuikTrip convenience store that was burned down with employees inside.

    New Details in Ferguson Killing Make the Police Look Even Worse

    Almost a week after 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, the police department identified the officer involved as six-year veteran Darren Wilson. At a press conference at 9 a.m. this morning, police chief Tom Jackson said Wilson, who has no disciplinary history, was responding to a robbery at a nearby convenience store when he encountered the teenager. The police also released video stills that appeared to show Brown threatening the convenience store owner, and a detailed report on the incident. Citizens attending the press conference immediately erupted in anger at the perceived insinuation that Brown may have been a suspect in the robbery. Jackson did not stick around to answer questions. USA Today reports that Wilson and his family skipped town "days ago."

    Officer who shot Michael Brown didn't know he was a robbery suspect

    The fatal encounter between a police officer and an unarmed young man began when the officer stopped the man because he was walking in the street, Ferguson’s police chief said Friday in a revelation that added to public anger and confusion over Michael Brown’s death.

    The disclosure came hours after police released a report identifying Brown, 18, as a suspect in a robbery that occurred minutes before Brown was shot dead by Officer Darren Wilson, who was publicly identified Friday after nearly a week of public pressure.

    The Brown family’s attorney accused Police Chief Thomas Jackson of character assassination for tying Brown to the crime.

    “He chose to talk about something to darken up this man’s past,” attorney Anthony Gray said at news conference. “Let me be real clear to everyone here,” he added. “This family has never said Michael Brown was a perfect kid.”


    As police stay silent, anger fills the information vacuum

    Officials in St. Louis County and the tense town of Ferguson, Mo., remain mum nearly three days after an unidentified police officer shot an unarmed black teenager to death. But a young man who says he was with the victim at the time of the shooting has described a virtually unprovoked attack in which the officer fired repeatedly — even after the victim raised his hands and begged him to stop shooting.


    Captain Johnson on Ferguson: This Is Not a Black and White Issue

    Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ronald S. Johnson said he sees no need for a police presence at the protests in Ferguson tonight.

    "If something happens and if we have to come down here, we will," Johnson said. "But if it's like it is now and like it was last night, there's really no need for us to come down."

    Johnson said three police vehicles were damaged Thursday night after someone threw rocks at them. He also said that one officer had a minor injury, presumably from being grazed by a rock. He declined to elaborate.


    Tear gas & Molotov cocktails give way to hugs in Ferguson

    County police in riot gear and armored tanks gave way to state troopers walking side-by-side with thousands of protesters as the St. Louis suburb where an unarmed black teen was shot by a city police officer overwhelmingly avoided violence Thursday after nearly a week of unrest and mounting public tension.


    Tear gas is a chemical weapon banned in war. But Ferguson police shoot it at protesters.

    The first thing you hear is the bang. Then the clatter of something metallic hitting and rolling across the pavement. Then, out of the black of night, come the screams.

    The location, according to video, is a darkened street somewhere in Ferguson, Mo. And the cops, marching inexorably down the street and flanked by bright lights and squad cars, just fired several rounds of tear gas.

    Ferguson police chief: Officer didn't stop Brown as robbery suspect

    The Ferguson police officer who shot Michael Brown didn't stop him because he was suspected in a convenience-store robbery, but because he was "walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic," the city's police chief said Friday.

    Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson -- hours after documents came out labeling the 18-year-old Brown as the "primary suspect" in the store theft -- told reporters the "robbery does not relate to the initial contact between the officer and Michael Brown."


    Photos: Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson earned police honor before fatal shooting

    Six months before he shot and killed an unarmed teenager, police Officer Darren Wilson earned a commendation for his “extraordinary effort in the line of duty.”

    Yahoo News confirmed the award through the February 11 Ferguson City Council meeting minutes and photos Wilson’s father posted to his Facebook page.

    “Very proud of my son, Darren Wilson on his receiving a Commendation from his Police Department,” John Wilson wrote on February 11. “Congratulations Son.”


    Michael Brown posted a haunting message on Facebook last week as he prepared to enter a new phase in his life: college.

    “if i leave this earth today,” he wrote to a friend, “atleast youll know i care about others more then i cared about my damn self.”

    Brown, 18, died Saturday after a Ferguson police officer shot him multiple times outside an apartment complex. Brown was two days from starting class at Vatterott College. Close friends had been packing up and departing for schools such as Kansas State University and Arkansas Baptist University on sports scholarships.


    Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, who has been identified as the police officer who shot unarmed teen Michael Brown, was pictured for the first time in a report on Saturday as new photographs emerged of the aftermath of his death.

    Justice Department orders new autopsy; violence erupts in streets once again

    The federal government on Sunday took on an intensified role in investigating the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager, but violent unrest erupted once again Sunday night on the streets of this St. Louis suburb.

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. issued a terse statement ordering an independent autopsy of Michael Brown by a federal medical examiner — the third autopsy of the 18-year-old. The Justice Department took the action in response to what spokesman Brian Fallon called “the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case” and requests from Brown’s family. Brown was killed Aug. 9 by a white police officer, Darren Wilson.


    Michael Brown shot at least 6 times, independent autopsy shows

    Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- Michael Brown was shot at least six times, according to the preliminary results of a private autopsy that his family requested.

    The independent autopsy was conducted by high-profile pathologist Michael Baden. Baden testified in the O.J. Simpson, Phil Spector and Drew Peterson murder trials.

    Family attorney Daryl Parks did not provide additional details about the preliminary results.

    However, the New York Times, reporting on the same independent autopsy, reported that two of the bullets struck Brown in the head. The other four struck him in the right arm -- and all six were fired into his front.


    Shootings, arrests bring more chaos to Ferguson

    Seven people were arrested and one person was shot early Sunday as police and protesters clashed again in a haze of tear gas despite a curfew that took effect at midnight.

    It was not clear who fired the shot, but Gov. Jay Nixon said Sunday that no police officers fired their guns during or after the protest.
