Protests continued over the weekend in Ferguson, Missouri, in response to the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer. Saturday night those protests ended with tear gas and seven arrests, as police confronted protesters who violated a state-imposed curfew.
Police are still looking for the person who shot and critically wounded a man in the mayhem. Meanwhile, FBI agents have been going door-to-door investigating the death of Michael Brown. And Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday that the Justice Department would conduct its own autopsy as soon as possible.
The shooting of 18-year-old Brown has led to vigils and protests not just in Ferguson, but across the nation, including one last week in Minneapolis. It's also prompted a discussion across the country about the relationship between local black communities and police.
In Minneapolis, some civil rights advocates worry that longstanding tension between police and the African-American community could erupt along similar fault lines. That relationship has been strained by a number of high-profile incidents in the last year.
Tom Weber talks with MPR News Reporter Brandt Williams about how the news from Ferguson is playing out in Minneapolis - and the relationship between police and the black community in the city.
