I don't have any details, but this is the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown's death. All I know is coming from Twitter, where it appears one young man has been shot dead* by police and his girlfriend pepper-sprayed.

Raw, real time video, all via Search4Swag on Twitter:

Update: St Louis County Police Department:

Update 2: *It's hard to know what's happening with two shootings reported, but there are some reports that the man on the street was taken to the hospital and was possibly not shot dead. I'll try and update/correct as reports come through.

Update 3: It's still unclear what exactly happened here, but this tweet from Anonymous seems to illustrate the point:

[This tweet removed at the request of @akaCharlesWade, who was honoring the family of Mike Brown's request that the photo on the right not be posted again and again.]
