ATLANTA (AP) - Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in downtown Atlanta to protest the shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed man who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. <br />
Protesters gathered outside the CNN Center and marched through downtown Atlanta Monday evening chanting and holding signs calling for answers in 18-year-old Brown's death. <br />
