USA: Arrest made at Mike Brown solidarity rally in Ferguson following gunfire

United States, Ferguson
August 10, 2015 at 20:18 GMT +00:00 · Published

At least one person was arrested while another was carried away after reportedly fainting in Ferguson, Sunday.

The events unfolded after SWAT teams arrived following at least one man discharging several rounds from a weapon.

Protesters took to the streets once an event involving black activists and religious officials including Bree Newsome and Cornel West finished at St. Mark's Church. The events have been organised as part of a weekend-long '#UnitedWeFight' event, organised to commemorate the first anniversary of Mike Brown's death.

Actions have been called across the United States to demand justice for Brown, whose killing ignited racial tensions and sparked month-long protests, with heavily-militarised police squads being deployed on the ground.

Michael Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson on 9 August 2014, sparking protests across the United States. On November 24 2014, the St Louis County grand jury announced that Darren Wilson would not be indicted and on 4 March 2015, the US Department of Justice cleared the police officer of civil rights violations claiming that Brown was shot in "self-defence."
