Questions loomed and tensions rose over the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot multiple times after an altercation with an officer in Ferguson, Mo. on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014.
On Aug. 14, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said "operational shifts" were ahead for law enforcement, while President Barack Obama said there is no excuse for the use of excessive force by police in the aftermath of the shooting and called for a federal investigation.
On Aug. 15, local police released surveillance video they say shows Brown robbing a nearby convenience store shortly before he was killed.
