FERGUSON, MISSOURI — Police in the U.S. city of Ferguson on Friday released the name of an officer who shot and killed an unarmed African-American teenager last week, whose death ignited days of violent protests until the state's governor was appointed to assume crowd control duties.

Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson identified the officer as Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the department with no history of disciplinary issues, but declined to provide other details. The chief said earlier that Wilson was "devastated" by the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
