Protesters Face Off with Riot Police in Ferguson, Mo.
The FBI is opening an investigation into the shooting of unarmed Missouri teenager Mike Brown by a police officer in suburban St. Louis, officials said on Monday.
“The FBI notified me that they will be opening up a investigation that will run parallel to this investigation,” St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said at a news conference.
Belmar said he had spoke to St. Louis Division Special Agent in Charge William Woods who "said he had a tremendous amount of confidence in the St. Louis county police department, but at this point he felt the need to open up an investigation.”
The local NCAAP and other community leaders had asked federal officials to get involved in racial charged shooting. STORY AND VIDEO
