Home / National News / Ferguson Protests Peaceful, No Arrests Tuesday Night


(FERGUSON, Mo.) — Tuesday night in Ferguson, Missouri, was a calm one, with police reporting no arrests and no injuries as demonstrations continued in the wake of the one-year anniversary of the death of Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

About 100 protesters gathered along West Florissant Avenue, the site of most of the protests immediately following Brown’s death last year. The Saint Louis County Police Department said that there was a brief instance of rock throwing on the part of demonstrators just after 11 p.m., but that the night was much quieter.

The SLCPD added that there were no reported shootings, no calls involving shots fired, nor burglaries, looting or damage to property.

Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot to death on Aug. 9, 2014 by white police officer Darren Wilson. His death sparked protests and a national discussion on both race relations and community policing.
