Shooting victim fighting for life as police use tear gas to impose curfew on defiant Ferguson protesters seven days after unarmed teenager Michael Brown was killed by cop.

Ferguson

One person was shot and seven people arrested early this morning as police (top right) used smoke and tear gas (centre) to impose a curfew following the killing of an unarmed black teenager. Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri – eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Some demonstrators stood with their hands up (bottom right), the emblematic pose used by many protesters to characterise the position witnesses say Brown had assumed when he was fatally shot. It came as a first image emerged of Darren Wilson (top left), the officer who gunned down Brown.
