24/7 News: News Update

Protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, are attempting to shut down a freeway with a demonstration.  They're upset over Governor Jay Nixon's decision not to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the shooting of Michael Brown. 

Brown was shot to death by a Ferguson police officer.  That led to days of protests in the St. Louis suburb.  

Today's protest is taking place on a section of I-70.  There's a heavy police presence in the area.
