State of emergency: Protesters, police face off following Mike Brown's death anniversary

Following a night of protests in Ferguson that resulted in shots fired, demonstrators continued to make their voices heard Monday as St. Louis County declared a state of emergency in an effort to maintain order. The renewed protests follow the one-year anniversary of the Michael Brown shooting.

A black 18-year-old man, reportedly a friend of Michael Brown’s, was shot by police on Sunday. Tear gas was fired after a day of commemoration during which hundreds of people took to the streets of Ferguson.
