Protesters March Through Streets of Ferguson

Thursday, 14 August 2014 07:07 PM EDT

Hundreds of people protesting the death of a black Missouri teenager shot by a white police officer are marching through the streets of Ferguson.

The protests come as the Missouri State Highway Patrol is taking over supervising security in the St. Louis suburb amid criticisms of the police response.

Early Thursday evening, St. Louis County police and state troopers were walking alongside demonstrators. Several marchers stopped to shake hands with officers. One woman hugged Capt. Ron Johnson of the Highway Patrol, who is overseeing security.

The scene stands in stark contrast to earlier this week when officers in riot gear and in military equipment clashed with protesters. Crowds have gathered since Saturday's shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Johnson told The Associated Press, "We all want justice. We all want answers."
