Ferguson Protests

There have been a week of protests, some peaceful and some violent, since the shooting death of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The unrest prompted Governor Jay Nixon to declare a state of emergency on Saturday an implement a curfew in the St. Louis suburb. Tensions had flared Friday after police released the name of the officer who fatally shot Brown and named the teen as a suspect in a convenience store robbery that occurred shortly before he was shot. --Lloyd Young (25 photos total)

Some reports state that Brown hand his hands in the air when he was shot and killed by a police officer on Saturday in suburban Ferguson, Mo.
