FBI opens probe after police shooting of black U.S. teen

The FBI opened a civil rights investigation on Monday after the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager led to rioting in a Missouri suburb and stirred racial tensions. The family of Michael Brown demanded “justice for our son” as witnesses and police gave conflicting versions of how the 18-year-old was shot in broad daylight on Saturday, two days before he was to start college. “We think it will be very clear, when all of this is over, what really happened and how this child was executed,” Brown’s lawyer Benjamin Crump told reporters as the teenager’s grieving mother broke down in tears. Looters targeted more than a dozen businesses in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson overnight Sunday after a vigil on the sidewalk where Brown died erupted into clashes with police armed with tear gas and clubs.
