How to Become a Bounty Hunter



NAACP Calls for FBI Investigation into Killing of Unarmed Teen Near St. Louis

Civil unrest over the fatal shooting of a black teenager by police turned into looting and vandalism Sunday evening as investigators try to piece together what happened.

The Associated Press reports that the St. Louis County chapter of the NAACCP is urging the FBI to take over the case of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was killed after a scuffle with police in the predominately black suburb of Ferguson.

“He was running this way,” Brown’s grandmother, Desiree Harris, said. “When I got up there, my grandson was lying on the pavement. I asked the police what happened. They didn’t tell me nothing.”

Brown’s stepfather held a sign outside his house that read, “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!”

Police confirmed a police officer shot Brown but didn’t elaborate. Witnesses said Brown was unarmed when he was shot.

The FBI’s involvement is important “to protect the integrity of the investigation,” said John Gaskin, a member of the St. Louis County NAACP.

Attorney General Eric Holder said attorneys in the department’s civil rights division will monitor developments related to the shooting.
