Demonstrations resume in Missouri over shooting death of black teen

LOUIS (Reuters) - More than 100 demonstrators marched peacefully in St. Louis on Tuesday, calling for the arrest of a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, almost three weeks ago. By nightfall, a small group of about 30 protesters marched along the street that has been the center of demonstrations since the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, where the majority of residents are black and most elected officials and police are white. Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, who shot Brown, has been put on paid leave and is in hiding. Brown's death focused global attention on the state of race relations in the United States and evoked memories of other racially charged cases, including the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African-American, in Florida in 2012.
