Michael Brown, 18, was an unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer. His death sparked nationwide protestors.
The New York Times reported Sunday night that Brown was shot at least six times, two of the shots were in the head and four times in the right arm, and the bullets did not appear to have been shot from close range due to the lack of gunpowder in his body.
Hundreds of people filled the streets in a peaceful protest for Michael Brown, who was shot by police, on West Florissant near a QuikTrip Sunday afternoon.
Authorities were expecting to allow protestors to voice their concerns until midnight in accordance to Governor Jay Nixon’s mandated curfew for Ferguson from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m.
The mood of the protests changed at 9 p.m., KTVI reported.
According to KTVI, police attempted to clear the crowds after shots were reportedly fired. Heavily armed officers threw tear gas into the crowds which slowly dispersed the protestors by 9:45 p.m.
Video from Sunday night made the intersection of West Florissant and Solway look like a war zone.
By 11 p.m., the streets were filled primarily with law enforcement and residents walking home.
An official police investigation into the fatal shooting of Brown is underway. Police Captain Ron Johnson said 40 federal agents are going door to door to find more witnesses in the shooting case.
