As Ferguson is bracing for a potential fifth night of violent protests over the police shooting of unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown, the Missouri governor announced that the Missouri State Highway Patrol will take control of security in the St. Louis suburb.

In a press conference, Governor Jay Nixon announced that Ferguson County Police Department and the St. Louis County Police Department would no longer be in charge.

In charge: Capt. Ron Johnson.
