“Extraordinary circumstances” surrounds black teenager’s death: Third autopsy ordered

Residents in the St. Louis suburb have been protesting police brutality after an unarmed black teen was fatally shot by a white police officer.

A preliminary private autopsy found Brown was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, reported The New York Times.

Meantime, Nixon ordered the National Guard to the city, saying they would help “in restoring peace and order” to Ferguson.

Police claimed that protesters had hurled Molotov cocktails at them. And at least two people were shot by “civilians.”

Nixon had declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew for the city.

“We must first have and maintain peace. This is a test. The eyes of the world are watching,” Nixon said. “We cannot allow the ill will of the few to undermine the good will of the many.”

“This is not to silence the people of Ferguson, of this region or others, but to contain those who are drowning out the voice of the people with their actions,” Nixon said. Brown was shot to death last Saturday afternoon.
