Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is planning another visit to the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson today. His office says the governor will be meeting with local leaders, after fresh violence erupted following protests over the police killing of an unarmed teen.
Several hundred people congregated on a busy Ferguson street Friday night as protests continued nearly a week after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer.
It was peaceful until about midnight, when a large crowd broke into the convenience mart that Brown allegedly robbed the day he was killed.
Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson said some in the crowd began throwing rocks and other objects at police. Police used tear gas to disburse the crowd but no arrests were made.
One officer was hurt, but information on his injuries was not immediately available.
