Shots have been fired in Ferguson, Missouri, at a protest to mark the first anniversary of the killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.

St Louis County police said an officer was “involved in a shooting after coming under heavy gunfire” and that “two unmarked cars took shots”.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing at least one injured person lying on the ground.

The shooting of the 18-year-old by white police officer Darren Wilson sparked demonstrations across America.

It fuelled a national protest movement against racial bias by police.
