Dramatic pictures emerge of Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri

Photographs have emerged of the moment a black teenager was shot dead by police in America, just as protests turned violent once again in the small Missouri suburb of Ferguson.

The events last weekend were apparently “live tweeted” by a rapper living beside the spot where Michael Brown, 18, died.

The mostly black neighbourhood has been rocked by protests ever since, threatening to ignite a race war, as locals demand to know how an unarmed man could be shot dead in broad daylight as he apparently tried to surrender to police.

Officers have been widely condemned for being out of touch and for using excessive force against the demonstrators. They have also come under fire for claiming that Brown was stopped because he was a suspect in a robbery – only to backtrack hours later when it emerged the officer involved did not know of his alleged crime.
