The fatal shooting of a teen Saturday afternoon by a Ferguson police officer outside an apartment complex sent angry residents into the street, taunting police and firing shots. Michael Brown, 18, was shot at approximately 2:15 p.m. in the 2900 block of Canfield Drive. His mother, Lesley McSpadden, said the shooting took place as her son was walking to his grandmother’s residence. Piaget Crenshaw, 19, said she was waiting for a ride to work when she saw a police officer attempting to place Brown in the squad car. She then said she saw the teen, hands in the air, attempt to flee. Several shots hit Brown as he ran, Crenshaw said. She complied with a request that she give photos of the scene to authorities. Brown, a 2014 Normandy High School graduate, was scheduled to begin classes at Vatterott College on Monday. The shooting sparked a furious backlash. Louis Head, Brown’s stepfather, held a sign that said: “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!” Tension flared off and on through the evening. A calm settled over the area after mourners gathered at a prayer circle — watched over by a St. Louis County police officer sitting atop a SWAT vehicle — and then a candlelight vigil as darkness fell. The acrimony briefly resurfaced about 8:30 p.m. as demonstrators again swarmed the street chanting, “We Are Michael Brown” as wary police officers stood nearby with assault rifles. At one point, residents held up their hands, saying, “Don’t shoot me!” as police officers with barking dogs tried to keep order. Approximately 100 protesters then went to the street outside Ferguson police headquarters and chanted, “No Justice! No Peace!” McSpadden appeared at the shooting scene sporadically, comforted by friends and neighbors. “I know they killed my son,” McSpadden was heard telling an acquaintance. “This was wrong and it was cold-hearted.” Her son, she continued, “doesn’t kill, steal or rob. He doesn’t do any of that.”
