Protests continue in Ferguson

FERGUSON, Missouri (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's been another night of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.

Police fired tear gas at a crowd of protestors after they announce that they no longer find the protests to be peaceful.

Police say they fired tear gas after firebombs were thrown at them.

Earlier in the evening two journalists, one from the Washington Post, the other from Huffington Post, say they were arrested while reporting on the protests. Neither was charged.

Demonstrators are seeking answers in the death of Michael Brown. The unarmed 18-year-old was shot by a police officer Saturday.

Police say Brown was killed during a struggle where he tried to grab an officer's weapon.

Witnesses paint a different picture.

"He turned around and he puts his hands up like this. And the cop continued to fire until he just dropped down to the ground, and his face just smacks the concrete," said witness Tiffany Mitchell.

Officials still have declined to release the officer's name, for his safety.

Thursday is supposed to be the first day of school in the area, but it has been postponed for safety reasons.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is also expected to visit Ferguson Thursday.
