FERGUSON, Mo. (PIX11) - Concern continues to grow in Ferguson, Missouri following four nights of protest after an unarmed 18-year-old was shot and killed by a police officer Saturday.

The FAA has issued a no-fly-zone warning over the city.  St. Louis police requested the ban after their chopper was shot at during riots this week.  Planes and helicopters are not allowed to fly below three thousand feet in a three mile area around the city, and the ban will stay in place until Monday.

This is just the latest response to another night of violence over the death of Michael Brown.

The anger is further fueled by the police department's refusal to reveal the name of the officer who shot and killed the young man because it says it is afraid for his safety after death threats on social media.

The latest report from the medical examiner's office says that Brown died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The FBI is just one of several agencies that is now involved in the investigation.
