Another Night of Protests, Tear Gas in Ferguson


The atmosphere in Ferguson is growing more tense after shots were fired near where protesters were gathering.

Tear gas was deployed by law enforcement just after 11:00 p.m. News 4's Julian Johnson was one of many hit by tear gas. Officers have been using a loudspeaker to tell demonstrators to leave and go home.

A "Code 2000" was issued around 11:30 Monday night, meaning 50 additional officers were requested to come to the scene.
