Howard University Graduate Shot In The Head While Protesting In St. Louis
Tensions have reached their peak and beyond both in Ferguson, Missouri and across the country as the community continues to protest on behalf of the seemingly endless run of police brutality that continues to claim the lives of African-Americans at an increasing rate and police are apparently continuing to respond with violence even in the midst of the mayhem.
Most recently, a Howard University graduate by the name of Mya Aaten-White,who has been peacefully protesting in St. Louis, was shot in the head by police who are reportedly trying to pass it off as a drive by shooting according to fellow protesters.
This message, currently circulating the internet, gives a few additional details as to what happened:
