Four days after the fatal police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, the atmosphere remains tense in Ferguson, Missouri.

Early this morning, police shot a man they say pointed a handgun at an officer. The man is said to be in critical condition at a local hospital.

This comes after a drive-by shooting in which a woman was shot in the head. Two community gatherings last night called for justice.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Steve Giegerich attended one of the gatherings, and has been covering the story. He tells Here & Now's Robin Young about the unrest and ongoing reaction to Brown's killing.
