Protesters Rally After Teen's Shooting
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - About 200 people are rallying outside of a suburban St. Louis police department to protest the death of a black teenager who was shot by police.
The crowd chanted "We want answers" and "no justice, no peace," on Sunday morning before a police news conference.
Eighteen-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed Saturday afternoon near his grandmother's house by a Ferguson police officer.
St. Louis County police have not given a reason for the shooting, which happened in a predominantly black suburb a few miles north of downtown St. Louis.
A few police officers came out of the building to observe the crowd, which carried signs saying "stop police terrorism" and "disarm the police."
