Yesterday afternoon, police in Ferguson, Missouri, allegedly shot and killed unarmed teenager Mike Brown. Local media reported:
The St. Charles County Police Department held a press conference Sunday morning where they stated Brown was shot “more than just a couple of times” by a 6-year member of the Ferguson Police department.
The incident happened in a roadway Saturday afternoon near the Canfield Green Apartments in the 2900 block of Canfield.
