Tensions high as more protests planned in Missouri
ST. LOUIS - Tensions are high as the St. Louis region prepares for what's expected to be four days of large-scale protests and marches over the Michael Brown shooting.
The events start Friday in the wake of another fatal police shooting of a black 18-year-old.
Several civil rights organizations are joining together to host protests through Monday, starting with a Friday afternoon rally outside St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch's office.
The rallies are calling for charges against Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Brown on Aug. 9 in Ferguson. A state grand jury is hearing evidence in the case, and the Justice Department is investigating.
Black leaders in St. Louis also want the Justice Department to investigate the fatal shooting of Vonderrit D. Myers by a St. Louis officer on Wednesday night.
