Anger and sadness in Ferguson, Missouri, where police shot dead a teenager on Saturday afternoon. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DORIAN JOHNSON, WITNESS, SAYING: "We wasn't causing harm to nobody, we had no weapons on us at all." Dorian Johnson says he was walking home with his friend Mike Brown when a police officer in a car told them to get out of the street. The two kept walking when Johnson says the officer got out of the car and fired a shot. The two took off running. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DORIAN JOHNSON, WITNESS, SAYING: "He shot again and once my friend felt that shot he turned around and put his hands in the air and started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and he fired several more shots." Residents poured into the streets, condemning the shooting. Brown's mother is demanding answers. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LESLEY MCSPADDEN, MOTHER OF VICTIM, SAYING: "You took my son away from me. You know how hard it was for me to keep him in school and graduate? You know how many black men graduate? Not many. Because you bring them down to this type of level when they feel like they don't got nothing to live for. They gonna try to take me out anyway." As the anger festered, shots broke out again, but nobody was hurt. The officer who fired the shots has been placed on paid administrative leave. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FERGUSON POLICE CHIEF TOM JACKSON SAYING: "We do want this investigated fully and that's why we asked for the onside help to do that." Authorities have scheduled a news conference for Sunday but it's unlikely to alleviate the tensions of a community torn apart.
