After an autopsy revealed Michael Brown was shot 6 times, Ferguson once again descended into chaos
The ongoing situation in Ferguson, Mo. quickly worsened again this weekend after a few days of relative calm. Tensions escalated significantly on Sunday as police used tear gas violently dispersed hundreds of angry protesters marching towards a police command center — two hours before a midnight curfew was scheduled to go into place. Missouri’s Gov. Jay Nixon said on Monday morning that he would send the National Guard to Ferguson to restore calm.

The FBI opened an investigation Monday into the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager whose death stirred a night of unrest in a St. Louis suburb.
Many questions loomed over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who police said was shot multiple times Saturday after an altercation with an officer in Ferguson.
It was unclear whether Brown or a man he was with was involved in the scuffle, and authorities were vague about what led an officer to open fire. (AP)
