Black Teenager Mike Brown Killed by Police, St. Louis in Uproar
The FBI and the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division are investigating the death of 18-year-old Mike Brown, a black unarmed teenager who was shot by police in Ferguson on Saturday. The incident caused a night of looting and vandalism that left around 12 businesses with broken glass, a minimart set on fire and two officers injured. The hacktivist group Anonymous has also shut down the St. Louis County Police Department's website. Protesters want the officer who shot Brown identified; police claim Brown was killed after he pushed an officer back in his car and reached for his gun.
