Keep up with the latest developments in Ferguson, Missouri, by following these journalists, local officials and individuals on the ground.

It’s a story that has been at the forefront of the news, beginning with local protests Sunday, Aug. 10, the day after a white police officer in Ferguson shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old.

We have been following the story through news reports from wire services like the Associated Press and from local media outlets like the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. And, like many of you, we rely on real time information from these organizations’ reporters on the ground. But a warning, this feed will be updated in real time. It may contain graphic content that we will remove if it is deemed inappropriate for readers. And although we trust this list of people, we cannot verify the reporting contained in this feed.
