Michael Brown Protest in Tampa & Missouri

Update: One person was shot during more protests in Ferguson, Missouri on Saturday after a curfew went into effect and the governor declared a state of emergency. Missouri State Police Captain Ron Johnson said officers fired smoke and then tear gas to get to the wounded shooting victim in critical condition, according to CNN.com.

Around a dozen people gathered in Tampa’s College Hill area in front of the police station on Saturday morning to voice their anger and frustration over the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown in Missouri by a police officer last weekend.  Carol Lim has more.
