Governor Agreed to Deploy National Guard Troops in Missouri
National guard troops are heading to Ferguson, Missouri.
The state's governor deployed them, after a week of protests over the shooting of an un-armed 18-year-old.
Polo Sandoval is live in Ferguson with the details.
Sunday night saw some of the fiercest clashes yet between police and protesters furious over the death of Michael Brown.
Now the governor Jay Nixon has called up the Missouri national guard to help restore order in the saint louis suburb.
This all comes hours after a family attorney said autopsy they arranged found that brown was shot 6 times.
Twice in the head - though not from close range.
Two civilians were shot Sunday not by police though.
Authorities add, defiant demonstrators shot at, and threw home-made bombs at officers, prompting police to move in.
"Based on these conditions, I had no alternative but to elevate our response," Capt. Ron Johnson from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, said.
Through the night, police had reports of looting and vandalism...
But the key moment was when the crowd marched towards the police command center, according to the highway patrol.
"We were peaceful! This is unacceptable and this is not the law! This is unacceptable! Until we get justice we will not stop," Benjamin Crum, Brown Family Attorney, said.
The protests intensified Friday, after police identified the shooter as officer Darren Wilson... And released surveillance video reportedly showing brown roughing up a store-owner, and stealing cigars.
At a Sunday rally, the supporters again called for justice.
"And they loved their child, they had every right for their child to have due process of the law."
