Protests continued in Berkley, Mo, on Wednesday following the fatal shoot of a black teen by a white police officer earlier this week, according news reports. Protesters held a vigil and a march on Wednesday at the gas station where Antonio Martin was shot and killed Tuesday. Police say he pointed a gun at the officer.  Martin was fatally shot by police in the incident, which sparked a tense confrontation with police hours after the shooting. A vigil and a march in Berkeley, Mo., were largely peaceful overnight after confrontations between police and protesters Tuesday in the wake of the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old black man by a white police officer.
