Police Fire Tear Gas as Ferguson Unrest Continues
Aug. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Tear gas, gunfire and arrests marked the eighth day of unrest in the St. Louis suburb that has become a powder keg since an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by police Aug. 9.
Responding to reports of a shooting, dozens of police in armored trucks and riot gear advanced on a crowd of protesters in the town of Ferguson. The clash took place after a midnight curfew imposed by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon. (Source: Bloomberg)
