FERGUSON, MO (WAFF) - In another night of violence in Ferguson, Missouri, protesters took to the streets in response to a police officer shooting and killing unarmed teenager Mike Brown.

Crowds threw Molotov cocktails at officers, and they responded with tear gas.

Officers made several arrests on Wednesday night, including some journalists and St. Louis Alderman Antonio French. French is a graduate of Auburn University. French was released early Thursday morning.

Before his arrest, French had been chronicling the protests on social media.

Brown's parents have condemned the violence in the wake of their son's death.
