FERGUSON, Missouri, August 18, 2014– Last night, tear gas rained down on demonstrators in Ferguson, Mo. just as a curfew was to be imposed for the second night and protests turned violent.
Protestors threw rocks and kicked tear gas canisters back at police while chanting “don’t shoot.” The demonstrations stem from the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Earlier Sunday, an autopsy on Brown’s body was ordered by Attorney General Holder due to the alleged “extraordinary circumstances” surrounding his death.
In the video report, the AP states that protesters had fired back with gunshots.
