FERGUSON, Mo.—Community activists and local clergy on Tuesday renewed calls for the arrest of the officer who fatally shot an unarmed teen, in a case that set off days of riots and violence in this St. Louis suburb.

The parents of Michael Brown, the slain 18-year-old, stood with members of the Ferguson chapter of the National Action Network, the family's attorney and local clergy at a news conference outside the Ferguson Police Department to echo the earlier demands by the Rev. Al Sharpton that Officer Darren Wilson be arrested and indicted.
