Michael Brown (above) was killed by Ferguson police. Though stories remain inconsistent, all we know is that he was shot in the head by a police officer who's name remains under wraps due to his security being threatened. Brown was also unarmed having nothing that could possibly harm anyone on him.

 

He was due to start college on Monday, August 11, 2014.

Story depicts early events of the Michael Brown killing. Will be updated as soon as more information is given. Ferguson is basically on lock down and barely any information is coming out. Take this article with grain and salt.

By ALAN SCHER ZAGIER

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) -- The fatal shooting of a black teenager by police sent hundreds of angry residents out of their apartments Saturday in a St. Louis suburb, igniting shouts of "kill the police" during a confrontation that lasted several hours.

A St. Louis County chapter of the NAACP called for the FBI to look into the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, a predominantly black suburb a few miles north of downtown St. Louis. Brown's grandmother, Desiree Harris, said she saw him running in her neighborhood Saturday afternoon when she passed him in her car. Just minutes later, after she returned home, she heard a commotion and went outside to check on it. Less than two blocks away, she found Brown's body.

"He was running this way," she said. "When I got up there, my grandson was lying on the pavement. I asked the police what happened. They didn't tell me nothing."

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported several distraught relatives were outside talking with neighbors, including Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, and stepfather, Louis Head. Head held a sign that read: "Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!"

 

A spokesman with the St. Louis County Police Department, which is investigating the shooting at the request of the local department, confirmed a Ferguson police officer shot the man. The spokesman didn't give the reason for the shooting. St. Louis County police said a large crowd confronted officers following the shooting, yelling such things as "kill the police."

John Gaskin, a member of the St. Louis County NAACP, said the FBI should get involved "to protect the integrity of the investigation." He alluded to the 2012 racially-charged shooting of a 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by a Florida neighborhood watch organizer who was subsequently acquitted of murder charges, as well as the death of a New York man from a police chokehold after he was confronted for selling individual cigarettes on the street. "With the recent events of a young man killed by the police in New York City and with Trayvon Martin and with all the other African-American young men that have been killed by police officers ... this is a dire concern to the NAACP, especially our local organization," Gaskin said.

Changed the OP. 

 

I just feel strongly about this, but the story regarding Tony Stewart's incident has actually gotten more coverage than this if that's not saying anything... :roll:  It doesn't matter what day it is, nationwide coverage is nationwide coverage.. and journalists are always hard at work creating at-the-moment reports.

 

I'm still expecting more to come, that's why I'm continuously updating the OP.

Chills. I can't even fathom what that must feel like.

In Brazil 2 or 3 years ago a police shot and killed a man going into the subway because he thought he was a terrorist that was gonna blow up the train :fail:

Turned out all the man was carrying in his bag was his lunch to bring to work :rip:

What's really heart-jerking is the #IfIweregunneddown tag, in which two pictures are compared and one wonders which picture will be used in the media.
