(Associated Press) Anger spurred by the death of a black teenager at the hands of a white police officer in a St. Louis suburb boiled over again when protesters stormed into a Missouri convenience store — the same one the teen was accused of robbing.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s office tweeted "Long night. Thanks to all who tried to stop unnecessary violence" and said the governor would be in Ferguson, Missouri, on Saturday to meet with local leaders.
Police and about 200 protesters clashed late Friday after another tense day that began with authorities identifying the officer who fatally shot Michael Brown as 28-year-old Darren Wilson.
