FERGUSON, Missouri (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There was more trouble overnight in Ferguson, Missouri after a mostly peaceful evening of demonstrations.

Despite a plea from officials for residents to stay inside, many took to the streets once again to demand justice following the shooting death of Michael Brown.      

Overnight Ferguson police ordered everyone, including media, to leave the area immediately and started arresting those who didn't.

47 people were taken into custody.

Attorney General Eric Holder will arrive Wednesday to meet with the FBI and other officials investigating Brown's death.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon hopes peace will come soon to Ferguson.

"But, what we can do is work together to ensure that Michael Brown's death is not remembered as the tragedy that sparked a cycle of violence and distrust, but rather marks the beginning of a process of healing and reconciliation," said Governor Nixon.

A grand jury could begin hearing evidence to determine whether the officer who shot Brown, Darren Wilson, should face charges.

Brown's funeral is now set for Monday.

The Reverend Al Sharpton will deliver the eulogy.
