Missouri teen shot by policeDesiree Harris saw her grandson running near her home Saturday afternoon when she passed him in her car. Minutes later, she found his body on the street — fatally shot by a police officer.

The shooting of the black teenager, a recent high school graduate, sent hundreds of angry residents out of their apartments in the predominantly black St. Louis suburb of Ferguson in a confrontation with police that lasted several hours. They shouted obscenities and some threats, such as “kill the police,” but there were no reports of additional injuries.

Harris said she was expecting her 18-year-old grandson, Michael Brown, to visit her that afternoon and discovered him dead after she heard the commotion outside the apartment complex.

“He was running this way,” she said. “When I got up there, my grandson was lying on the pavement. I asked the police what happened. They didn’t tell me nothing.”

Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, told an acquaintance the shooting was “wrong and it was cold-hearted,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. According to the newspaper, Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, held a sign that read: “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!”
