The FBI will take over the investigation of a St Louis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager on Saturday.
Tom Jackson, chief of police in Ferguson, where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot dead, said he welcomed the decision to bring in the FBI to examine the incident. The move followed a request by Jay Nixon, governor of the state of Missouri.
Brown, who was walking to visit his grandmother, was shot several times following an altercation with a police officer.
Rioting erupted in Ferguson last night following a candlelight vigil, with 32 people arrested. A further protest outside Ferguson police headquarters was held today.
