FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Multiple police agencies were called to Ferguson, Missouri Saturday afternoon after a fatal officer-involved shooting, sparking outrage among hundreds of residents. 

 

News 4's Cory Stark, who is on the scene, said he saw a man lying dead on Coppercreek Road.  Police confirm there was an officer-involved shooting, near the Canfield Green Apartments. A large section of West Florissant Avenue was closed by police at Canfield Drive.

According to Stark, there are at least 100 police cars and numerous officers armed with M-16's in the area. Stark also says hundreds of people have gathered at the intersection of West Florissant Avenue and Canfield Drive to protest the incident. A large police force from 15 different departments responded, including riot-control officers.

Multiple witnesses say 18-year-old Mike Brown had no weapon on him, had his hands up in the air, but was shot by authorities multiple times. 

"He (the officer) shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air," said Dorian Johnson, a friend Brown's. "He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots."

"He was a good kid. He didn't live around here," said Desuirea Harris, grandmother of the victim. "He came to visit me and they did that to him for no reason." 

The St. Louis County NAACP has launched an investigation of the shooting saying they plan to "get to the bottom of what has occurred and will work to ensure that justice is served for all victims involved." 

The St. Louis County NAACP President Esther Haywood also released a statement saying:

“We are hurt to hear that yet another teenaged boy has been slaughtered by law enforcement especially in light of the recent death of Eric Garner in New York who was killed for selling cigarettes. We plan to do everything within our power to ensure that the Ferguson Police Department as well as the St. Louis County Police Department releases all details pertinent to the shooting. We strongly encourage residents to stay away from the crime scene so that no additional citizens are injured. I have spoken directly with St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar, and I am confident that both he and his department will ensure that the investigation is conducted properly and that all details are kept transparent.”

 

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson says St. Louis County Police have taken over the investigation and the officer involved in the shooting has been put on paid administrative leave.

Police have not said what led to the shooting at this time and have not confirmed if the victim was in possession of a weapon at the time of the shooting.

18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by Ferguson police officers during an encounter near the Canfield Green Apartments. According to KMOV, witnesses say Brown was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times by an officer.

 

 

 

Eyewitness, Piaget Crenshaw, 19, was waiting for a ride to work when she said she saw the police officer attempting to place Brown in the rear seat of a squad car.

She then observed the teen, hands in the air, attempt to flee. Several shots were fired at Brown as he ran, Crenshaw said, striking him in the head and chest.

Why so many respondents from so many agencies if only the one officer/set of officers shot a "suspect"?

Sounds like a huge coverup from the beginning

Any officer involved who fired a weapon should be shot in the back of the head.

That's taking a bit too far

What they need to do is if the cop is without a doubt at fault, trial them for murder or attempted murder like any other civilian.

That brotherhood of police force is strong... Most probably dont even want to be there, or agree with what happened, and now are thrown into a hostile situation because of a scumbag co-worker.. More officers need to man up and have sit outs, walk outs, or just move across the tape and show some solidarity to the people.

Yea because history shows that to be just and effective. **** that. **** our justice system. Fully understand if you find my stance morally wrong but I have no sympathy for the alarming number of racist, murderous, pigs employed by law enforcement agencies all over the country.

Even if buddy was attempting to flee/elude, you don't shoot him.  That's just a moronic, careless decision.  Some of these cowboys need to brush up on the continuum of force.

Nah. Just shoot them.

Like they do regular civilians.

You also have to understand that many are actually good people as well, being a cop is a job like any other, there are bad and good people in any job and mistakes happen, they are human too...some don't fire their gun their entire career, go to work one day get caught up in a hostile situation and fire their weapon stupidly...someone loses their life, yes they should pay for their mistake, if I make a mistake in my job, consequences follow and that's what seems to be the problem with the police force, the lack of consequences for tee most part, the higher ups much rather sweep things under the rug, then fully admit fault and punishing the officers accordingly.

But to sag everytime a police officer kills someone they deserve a bullet themselves is a bit of a reach.

I didn't say that. 

post #16 of 13325
The badge is a curse tbh, the sense of authority is misused by a lot of officers, they forget their raw job description is to serve and protect and that's the problem.

There are a lot of good men in the force tho...sucks that these situations keep happening, building up the communities aggression towards what are supposed to be our protectors

RIP to the kid n my condolences to the family. 18 years young n already gone, another life wasted. :{

 

What pisses me off most about this is dude wasn't given his due process. The cop played judge, jury, n executioner. The sad part is the cop will be suspended with pay, basically a vacation all for killing someone. Then an investigation will be conducted n either: A) He will be found to have done no wrong; simply doing what he is trained to do. OR B) Be brought in for some BS manslaughter charges, ask for a change in venue, due to bad press n win his trial; evading jail time n any monetary penalties (It will be paid for by the public; insult to injury). The victim's family will be given a formal apology n many will try to exploit the situation for their own gain. All the while, this young man's family, most importantly his mother n father, will be left with questions as to how/why this happened. They will be paraded around on news networks for ratings, all the while being used as the flavor of the week in the fight against oppression, injustice, what have you. He will become another statistic n cautionary tale that will be used by the talking heads on TV on how A) Our inner cities are in such turmoil (The same ol' BS no one cares to DO anything about) OR B) Another example on how minorities should know better than to test the law. It's just another media circus looking to gain on the misfortune of others.

 

What should be done, in my opinion, is the officer(s) involved in the incident should be fired immediately because A) He is a murderer that should be locked in prison OR B) He is clearly incapable of performing his duties while on the job. Also, the department should be required to pay for any funeral costs, therapy or counseling for witnesses n family, n set up a community outreach program, wherein the department can interact with those living within its jurisdiction so as to not promote mistrust between the two parties, all paid for by the offending officer's pension.

 

It's BS that this keeps happening time after time n punishment is not doled out. The police need to take responsibility kuz all this covering up only leads to further problems down the road.

Did you miss the part where they said hundreds gathered at the corner? Town is small so they probably needed backup as they said from outside agencies

real story. My boy got pulled over, i didnt have my id, cop got suspecious took my fingerprint called in . I told him i was leaving, I didnt do anything wrong.

 

Walked down the street his other buddy came up to me messing with me and said hey you. I looked at him and took off running. Im a fast runner they gave chase but cop got mad because i was ahead of him, and he started cursing at either him or myself

 

 

I hid in some bushes for about 1 hour then came out into the house I was at backyard,cops were right there looking for me 3 of them,

 

Now get this, 1 cop PULLED his gun at on me and was about to shot, the other cop slapped his hand down and said NO, there is people around

everyone is getting shot by cops. its just blacks get more coverage. a white boy got killed by the cops last week, but he did by sucicide he pulled out a air rifle.Cop said he pointed it at him but all he witness said the boy never pointed it and was going to lay it on the ground

post #25 of 13325
Comments on various news websites really get you thinking.. Some say a kid snatched and grabbed stuff at a local gas station, started running, and they shot the kid in the back.. Other people say the kid that got shot was the wrong kid altogether... This will stay messy and I can't really blame anyone for being mad.... Why can't the officers boss turn on the officers, and just proclaim them as moronic trigger happy cops? Is that the union at play there?

I don't think the police dept is going to find a way to justify the office firing 10 shots at an unarmed person, even if he was fleeing
