FERGUSON---Nights of unrest have vied with calls
for calm in a St Louis suburb where an unarmed
black teenager was killed by police, while the
community is still pressing for answers about the
Hundreds of residents packed two churches Tues-
day evening for community meetings about the
death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was con-
fronted by a Ferguson officer while walking with
a friend in the street near his grandmother s home.
People also gathered in the streets Tuesday night,
shouting at police.
The St Louis Post-Dispatch reported that police
again fired tear gas into a crowd.
One person was injured in a drive-by shooting,
although it was not clear if the shooting was related
to the protests.
The post-dispatch also reported that a St Louis
County police officer shot and critically wounded
a man who authorities said pulled a handgun on
The fatal shooting of Brown has exposed deep
racial and economic fault lines in the community.
At one church gathering with dozens of clergy
members and elected officials, Missouri Gov Jay
Nixon urged calm "in the face of crisis."
"We stand together tonight, reeling from what
feels like an old wound torn open afresh," Nixon
"A wound that hadn t quite healed right in the
first place, and now the pain is just as searing as
when the injury first occurred."
The other church rally featured the Rev Al Sharp-
ton, who earlier in the day pressed police to release
the name of the police officer involved---but also
pleaded for calm after a night of looting and van-
dalism and instances of police using tear gas.
"The local authorities have put themselves in a
position---hiding names and not being transpar-
ent---where people will not trust anything but an
objective investigation," Sharpton said at a news
conference with Brown s parents.
Ferguson police initially planned to release the
name of the officer, who is on administrative leave.
But they said death threats to its officers prompted
them to withhold it.
Computer hackers have also targeted the city s
website and released details online about individual
"If we come out and say, It was this officer,
then he immediately becomes a target," Ferguson
police chief Tom Jackson said.
"We re taking the threats seriously."
Police have not disclosed the race of the officer,
but witnesses said he was white. The Ferguson
police force has 53 officers, three of whom are black.
Jackson said the city has had trouble recruiting and
retaining black officers.
Investigators have released few details about the
deadly encounter, saying only that a scuffle unfolded
after the officer on a routine patrol asked Brown
and another teen to get out of the street on Saturday
At some point, the officer s weapon fired inside
a patrol car, according to the St Louis County Police
Department, which is handling the investigation
at the smaller city s request.
Police have said there is no security or police
video of the confrontation. (AP)
