    Shots have been fired in Ferguson, Missouri, at a protest to mark the first anniversary of the killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.

    St Louis County police said an officer was "involved in a shooting after coming under heavy gunfire" and that "two unmarked cars took shots".

    Eyewitnesses reported seeing at least one injured person lying on the ground.

    The shooting of the 18-year-old by white police officer Darren Wilson sparked demonstrations across America.

    It fuelled a national protest movement against racial bias by the police.

    The violence came at the end of a sombre, peaceful day of commemorations.

    Earlier on Sunday, hundreds of people stood silent for four and a half minutes at the spot where Michael Brown was killed, representing the number of hours that his body lay in the street, unattended.

    There may be an issue with racial profiling.
    Doesn't change the fact that Michael Brown's shooting was justified.
    It's incredible that these nitwits rally behind this lie. And for a piece of shit destined for prison. Ponderous, man.

    some of the people will probably just call the ambulance drivers and EMT crews racist though, since they don't want to use common sense and do things like stop shooting

    A teen is in critical condition after he was shot by four St. Louis County Police detectives during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, on the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death.

    Tyrone Harris Jr., 18, was identified by his father, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. His father told the newspaper his son got out of surgery about 3 a.m. The shooting happened about 11:30 p.m.

    Police said Harris shot at the plainclothes detectives after he was involved in a shootout with another group outside of the Ferguson Market on West Florissant Avenue in the middle of protests....................

    Somebody should tell them that you need to leave your gun at home when you go to a peaceful protest or else it becomes a violent shootout.
