Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown, 18, on August 9, 2014, but the reverberations still are being felt. As week two of the investigation into Brown's death begins and the findings of several autopsies are released, Ferguson remains a heated zone of peaceful protesters and militarized police. Riverfront Times photographer Steve Truesdell captured the city's temperature in these photos from August 18, 2014.
In the days following the shooting, there have been outpourings of support, sorrow, and anger from celebrities and community members alike. Many have taken to the streets of Ferguson to protest. What began as a peaceful demonstration turned increasingly violent, and the protests turned into riots. Now two others have been shot in separate incidents, and the tension surrounding Brown's death continues to permeate St. Louis and the country.
The photographs above were taken by Riverfront Times photographers and writers as well as by contributors. A number of different cameras and cell phones were used.
