FERGUSON, Mo. - A St. Louis County teen is dead and the community is outraged after a Ferguson police officer opened fire Saturday afternoon.

The shooting happened around 12 p.m. at the Canfield Green apartment complex. Police have not released a reason for the shooting.

Family confirmed the victim was 18-year-old Michael Brown. Officers from 15 other departments responded to the scene after a second round of gunfire rang out.

There was an uproar from bystanders around 2 p.m., and five gunshots were heard minutes later. Police have not said who fired the shots or why.

The St. Louis County NAACP has launched an investigation and asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to intervene.

Tensions reached a boiling point Sunday night during a planned rally and vigil in the wake of the teen's death. Investigators say two officers suffered minor injuries Sunday night during the riots including an officer who was hit by a brick and another suffered a knee injury. Both are expected to be okay.

Protesters marched to the Quiktrip late Sunday, looted and set it on fire, police said. At least 12 businesses were vandalized and looted.

Police say they made 32 arrests during the riots.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing. St. Louis County police are now handling the investigation.
