Last night saw more unrest in Ferguson in the wake of the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown last week. A preliminary, private autopsy report on Brown released yesterday showed that he had been shot six times – twice in the head.
While protests were peaceful for the most part, the St Louis County Police Department reported that Molotov cocktails were being thrown at officers, and that shots had been fired in the area.
Protesters remonstrate with Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ronald Johnson.
Police officers fire canisters of tear gas on protestors as they try to flee from West Florissant Road.
