Riot Control Techniques Deployed in Ferguson
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County Police say officers have used smoke and pepper spray to disperse crowds near the Ferguson Police Department after some protesters smashed the windows of a police car and threw rocks and other items at authorities.
Police cars were vandalized and several gunshots were heard Monday night as crowds erupted in anger after the announcement that Officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Some in the crowd reportedly tried to stop others from taking part in vandalism and other violence.
